We were eager to welcome more than 250 people to this year’s 5K Walk/Run for Autism on Saturday, October 1, 2022. Regrettably, Mother Nature had other ideas, and due to the impending rain, wind, and cold weather, we have made the difficult decision to transition this year’s event to a virtual 5K. Due to logistics and the necessary coordination with the City, we cannot reschedule the 5K for this year. Given that this would have been our first in-person 5K since 2019, we felt it would be important for this event to be a positive experience for all participants, which contributed to our decision in light of the weather.
