High school students volunteered for the Town of Islip’s Oct. 29 Michael Michelini 5K run, held Oct. 29 in the Town of Islip. Students were located throughout the course to direct runners and walkers along the route, to cheer them in, and to hand out water at the water stations and finish line. The proceeds for the race benefit cancer research and also fund an Islip High School girls and boys lacrosse scholarship.

After the race, the volunteers attended the Fireman’s Fall Festival on Main Street, where they volunteered at the American and high school post-prom booths.

“It was great to see so many high school students come out to volunteer in their community,” said teacher Renee Clock, who assisted in organizing the youth volunteers.   “We actually had volunteers from neighboring school districts, too. When our youth actively participate in such great causes for our community, they are in turn investing in the future of Islip.”
