LifeSkills Run/Walk for Autism

 

Due to the growing concerns around COVID-19, we have made the difficult decision to cancel the 14th annual LifeSkills Run/Walk for Autism.  We are disappointed, but know this is the best decision to make as we consider the health and safety of our event participants, staff and volunteers that make the event possible.  We are grateful to all of those that have supported us for this year’s event. Please go ahead and mark your calendars now for Saturday, April 24, 2021. We already look forward to planning the NEXT LifeSkills Run/Walk for Autism!!

 

 

Mark your calendar and begin training for the 14th annual LifeSkills Run for Autism! This event will include something for everyone: a 4 Mile Run, a 1 Mile Kid's Fun Run, and a 1 Mile Family Fun Walk.
