The event is designed with families in mind. At the finish line enjoy a fabulous lunch courtesy of Outback, Carrabba’s, and Bone Fish Grill. Post race enjoy fun filled festivities such as video gaming, a bounce house and dancing. 

The Expo (non-profit and for profit)

Our Expo provides families with the opportunity to investigate and interact with different special needs service providers – all in one place! Take a few moments to visit our Expo where families can visit with the key resources they need for their loved ones. For businesses this is a tremendous opportunity to showcase your offerings to a targeted audience.

Why We Race for Resources
We race so that our loved ones with special needs can enjoy the same opportunities and acceptance as their peers. Our fundraising efforts allow us to host an average of 15 FREE events each month - creating nearly 200 life-enriching social and educational opportunities a year for children, teens, and adults with autism and other special needs. 

The Adult Services Division provides a daily program where clients work on life skills, such as laundry, shopping, and cooking while providing interactive socialization and activities. We actively work in our community to expand the offerings of our program in order to serve more families. 

The Race is on! Whether you choose to create a team, run or walk, sponsor the race, or be an expo presenter, your partnership with Autism Cares Foundation enables us to create a calendar of events full of inclusion and acceptance for all our children, teens, and adults with autism and other special needs.
