Join the Autism Society of North Carolina and GHA Autism Supports for the 4th Annual Coastal Run/Walk for Autism on Saturday, March 29 at 8AM. This event will be held at the Mayfaire Shopping Center next to TrySports in the TrySports Events Field
This Run/Walk will feature a timed and certified 5K route using bib chips along with a one mile run/walk and the always popular kid's dash. Whether you are an avid runner or a dedicated supporter of autism awareness, join us for a day of celebration! You can register as an individual or even start your own team. Proceeds from this event benefit the programs and services supported by the Autism Society of North Carolina and GHA Autism Supports in Coastal North Carolina. For over 40 years, the Autism Society of North Carolina has helped individuals on the autism spectrum and their families. For over 35 years, GHA Autism Supports has provided residential, day and community services for residents of North Carolina with a primary diagnosis of Autism Spectrum Disorder.
A successful event needs support provided by volunteers. Last year, over 50 volunteers assisted throughout the morning to ensure a successful and fun event for all. Volunteers will receive a race day t-shirt along with a chance to make a difference in the life of an individual with autism.
