BENEFITING: Autism Society of America - Akron, OH
EVENT: Akron's Autism 5k and Walk
EVENT DATE: Jun 14, 2014
Let's Lace It. Race It. and Face Autism Together!
I find myself to be truly blessed and fortunate to have a son like Cameron. He is much more than just his autism. Cameron is truly an amazing little boy who is kind, smart and probably one of the most affectionate children you have ever met. Much like other children, he enjoys playing outdoors, watching cartoons, learning to draw his favorite characters, learning to swim and of course, the idea of superheroes.
This cause is an extremely personal one for both of us and we would like to thank you in advance for helping us to raise money to help this organization.
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 mile 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!
