The Autism Society of Greater Akron’s (ASGA) Walk and 5k is a fun, healthy, and effective way to show your support for all those impacted by autism in our community and to raise funds for ASGA – all money raised here, stays here! The run is a 5k timed course and this year, we are offering a new twist: timed walkers who can walk the 3.1 mile course and compete for fun prizes! The Family Fun Walk is 1.2 miles and takes into consideration those who might not want to walk three miles, but are with us all the way! The race and walk both kick-off at the same time this year at 9:00 a.m. , with activities and entertainment following.
Your generosity helps us continue to serve our community and continue our vision that all affected by autism have ready access to services and supports needed to be safe, educated, healthy, productive and able to pursue happy and fulfilling lives. Don’t forget that every dollar raised here stays here. Together we will Face Autism Together!
THANK YOU to everyone who participated in and or donated to the 2013 event, Lace it. Race it. Face it, Facing Autism Together. It was a great success with a beautiful day, lots of wonderful sponsors and many fundraising walk teams. With just over 2,250 runners and walkers we raised $90.000!
