Welcome to the page of Kelly's Unstoppable Team! I created this page to help raise funds for the Autism Society of Greater Akron. The 4th annual Akron Autism 5k takes place June 14 at Lock 3 and will serve as a great opportunity to raise funds and awareness for the Autism community.
As most of you know, my sister Kelly was diagnosed with Autism at age 2. She is now 11 years old and continues to overcome her daily challenges, although some days are harder than others. As her big sister, I would like to run and honor Kelly in this year's race.To have a team to run with and support her would mean so much to me and Kelly's family.
Last year was my first time running in the race and attending the event and it was GREAT. The race was a blast and so many people came out to support the community. I was so surprised last year when I beat my goal of $300, so this year I am hoping to raise $400! Any little bit helps and is appreciated.
If you like to run, have never done a 5k or are a serious runner...feel free to join the team!! Invite your friends, family, co-workers and whoever else you think would be a great addition. The more the merrier on race day!
Thanks to all in advance for supporting this great cause and supporting a brilliant, beautiful little girl, Kelly.
