Whether you’re a serious runner, a casual jogger or a walker, you’ll enjoy the Autism 5K.  Last year we had nearly 2000 participants, evenly split between walkers and runners.  Many groups participate in support of a particular family member, a cause, a workplace or just for fun.


The 2011 T-Shirts will feature custom artwork by the talented local artist Michael Birawer!  Michael has graciously offered to allow us to use this wonderful piece for our 2011 race artwork.  T-Shirts are available in Adult and Kid sizes this year.
