Autism Speaks is excited to be back for a 2nd year as a charity partner in the 2017 Boston Marathon.
Since 2007 our Team Up! with Autism Speaks runners have raised over $8 million through events all over the world. Here’s your chance to run and support the mission of Autism Speaks. Let's make 2017 our best year yet!
Running 26.2 miles is a challenge that most of us will never take on. Our runners embrace this challenge to help their children, their grandchildren, their nieces, their students, and their neighbors. Statistics show that every 15 minutes a child is being diagnosed with autism. That means in the time it takes the average runner to complete the marathon, 20 children will be diagnosed.
Autism Speaks is enhancing lives today and accelerating a spectrum of solutions for tomorrow.
