Join us by running or walking a 5K on July 4, wherever you are, to show your support for people with autism. Your fundraising efforts will empower our work to promote solutions for the needs of people with autism and their families – including those in urgent need of resources right now – and fuel our continued commitment to create a kinder, more inclusive world for people with autism.
This year, we’re celebrating the 20th anniversary of the Autism Speaks 5K, which started with an amazing group of volunteers in Potomac, MD. To commemorate this milestone, we are taking the event from neighborhood to nationwide by inviting everyone across the country to join together (virtually) to increase understanding and acceptance for people with autism and their families while raising raise funds for Autism Speaks.
Every registered participant will be sent a commemorative event shirt and finisher medal to show off your accomplishment and support for a kinder world.
Whether around your neighborhood, on a treadmill or in your local park (maintaining safe social distancing recommendations in your region), we look forward to seeing our community come together to support the autism community.
Registration will close at 11:59 PM on Friday, July 3.
