Over 1000 runners/walkers and close to 200 volunteers come out annually to make our 5K Walk-Run a success! This is our largest event for the year that not only helps raise autism awareness in the Dayton area, but also serves as a resource fair for families. All of the money raised from the walk stays in the local area supporting our Family Grant program as well as other outreach and educational events put on throughout the year.
Ready to have some fun?! Our annual walk/run for Autism Awareness and Acceptance is back. We're going to come together safely to raise much needed funds. All proceeds from the event will be used to fund our family grant program.
Those participating in the 5K Run (timed) will start at 10am and those participating in the 5K Walk (not timed, no race bib provided) will start after the runners have started. We will adhere to an approximate 20 min/mile pace and everyone, runners and walkers, must be finished by 11:15am
