The Dan River Autism Awareness 5k raises awareness about autism and is inclusive of individuals and families affected by autism in our region. Participants may opt to for fundraising teams to raise funds for The Autism Education Fund and the Autism Impact Fund.
Teams do not have to walk or run the course together. In the weeks leading up to the event, teams work together to fundraise and to raise autism awareness. Each team that raises $1,000 or more will be recognized at the event as a Top Team. View our fundraising tips and ideas here.
