Earl L. Vandermeulen High School sophomores and sisters Alexandra Carlson and Kate Carlson took to the streets for a four-mile virtual walk in recognition of Autism Awareness Month. Joined by their mother, Port Jefferson Middle School special education teacher Christina Carlson, they did it to support the EJ Autism Foundation. More than 300 people participated in the event to bring recognition to the organization that works to create autism awareness and helps support schools and programs on Long Island that teach students on the spectrum.
