Akron’s Autism 5k Run and Walk started in 2010 with the dream of an all-volunteer Board that wanted a walk and 5k in Akron to raise awareness of autism in our community.

Seven years later, we have the premier autism awareness event in Akron!  Here are a few highlights:

  • More than 2,500 participants, 60 Vendors, and 100 Volunteers
  • Voted Best Kids Event in 2014 by “Summit for Kids”
  • Largest charity event in Lock 3 and largest walk of its kind in Greater Akron
  • Raises more than $100,000 annually for local autism-related services and programs
  • All money raised here, stays here!

Sponsorship opportunities for 2017 are available now.  For information, please contact Laurie Cramer via phone at (330) 940-1441 ext 3 or email HERE.
