Run for Autism 5K

Thank you for Running for Autism!


Save the date for the next Run for Autism 5K on April 16, 2016!

Together, you raised $125,000 for VIA! We can’t thank you enough.

One of our sponsors told us the Run for Autism 5K had more smiles than any other race.

You make the Run for Autism 5K a special race, filled with heart and a feeling of community.

Thank you for joining together with more than 1,400 runners to support children, adults and families affected by autism.

As you watched the Kids Race, mingled with our families and staff, and smiled the morning away, we hope you got to see a glimpse of the miracles you’re creating.

Thank you for raising more than $125,000 for the Virginia Institute of Autism, and making strides toward a brighter future!
