SYOSSET - More than 500 people took to the streets of Syosset Saturday morning for the Sister Jackie Festival 5K.
Former students and parishioners of St. Edward the Confessor Church gathered to remember Sr. Jacqueline Walsh, who was killed by a hit-and-run driver while out for an evening walk during a retreat in Water Mill in July 2012.
The suspect has not been apprehended.
Race organizers say Walsh was loved in the community and worked to help the lives of Long Island residents.
They hope to make the race an annual event. Proceeds from the 5K will go to a scholarship fund named in honor of Walsh.
