Event Description

For over 25 years, the Autism Society Central Virginia, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, has served as the region’s premier source of education, advocacy, and support for individuals with autism spectrum disorder (ASD), their families and friends, and interested professionals. Autism Spectrum Disorder is a developmental disability that occurs in all racial, ethnic, and socioeconomic groups and that causes significant social, communication, and behavioral challenges. More people than ever before are being diagnosed with autism, and currently, the CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention) estimates that an average of 1 in 68 children (1 in 42 boys) in the United States has an ASD. There is no known cure for autism.

Over the past thirteen years, the Autism Society Central Virginia 5k Run/Walk has grown from a small venture to an annual event that attracted over 1600 participants in 2014. Held at the Innsbrook Pavilion, this family-friendly race includes entertainment, food, exhibitors and a Kid’s Fun Zone. The 5K Run/Walk is one of the Autism Society Central Virginia’s primary sources of income, raising over $90,000 in 2014.

All funds raised from this event will provide much needed support for individuals with autism and their families in Central Virginia.  The funds raised here, stay here!
