Train 4 Autism
Feel the joy of crossing the finish line knowing you’ve helped the autism program/organization of your choice. With Train 4 Autism, you’ll gain courage, strength and make a significant impact in the fight against autism. All levels and abilities are welcomed as Train 4 Autism is a regoistered 501c3 non-profit that was started by parents, not athletes.  Our mission is to support and empower parents and children touched by the disorder by involvement in endurance sport. Many Train 4 Autism participants are persons competing in their first athletic event ever or athletes that choose to walk a race instead of run – everyone is welcome!

There are several ways to get involved either as an athlete, a sponsor, and/ or a volunteer:

*This year we are very excited to offer a very special incentive: 

Fundraise $1000 & Receive an Apple iPad !!!

Technological advances with Tablet devices and special applications have allowed many affected with autism to make amazing breakthroughs allowing them to communicate, some for the first time. Train 4 Autism is honored to give the opportunity to offer this tool to participants as a fundraising incentive that they may have not been able to afford otherwise.       

What is Autism? Autism is a devastating neurological and biological disorder that typically affects children between the ages in 18 months to five years of age. Autism currently affects 1 in every 110 children today. It is estimated there are over 1 million people in the United States alone with autism. Autism affects each individual differently and at different levels of severity. Some people with autism are severely affected, cannot speak, require constant one-on-one care, and are never able to live independently. While others who have less severe symptoms, can communicate, and eventually acquire the necessary skills to live on their own. There is currently no cure.
