The Autism Speaks U chapter at UMass Amherst is celebrating the 10th year of our 5k run / 3k walk. A decade of bringing together a diverse community of individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), residents of the Amherst community, and students of the 5 college consortium. On April 8, 2018, we we continue this tradition for the 10th annual 5k run / 3k walk, with the goal of spreading awareness, raise money for the charity, and to let those with ASD know something important: We’re listening.
This family friendly event is full of arts and crafts, games, food, drinks, and the opportunity to learn more about this incredible community. Last year Autism Speaks U at UMass Amherst raised over $23,000. With your help, we hope to reach this year’s goal of raising $30,000! We have high hopes for a fun and successful event to celebrate our 10th anniversary. Please join us for a fun-filled day in Kendrick Park, located in downtown Amherst.
