This weekend, you have a great opportunity to get some exercise, enjoy some family time outdoors, and support a great cause. Does that sound like fun to you? If so, you’ll want to go ahead and register for the Eastern Run/Walk for Autism.
About the Eastern Run/Walk for Autism
This event is going to be so much fun. The run/walk will be on Saturday, April 27 at 9 a.m. You can find the starting line at Greenville Town Common at 105 E. First Street, Greenville.
If you want to run the 5K race, the cost is $25. If you’d prefer to participate in the awareness walk, the cost is $15.
And you can be sure that money is going to an excellent cause. In North Carolina, as many as 1 in 59 children may be diagnosed with autism. The Eastern Run/Walk for Autism raises money to make a difference in the lives of children with autism and their families. Specifically, the proceeds from the event will fund programs of the Autism Society of North Carolina. The ASNC serves more than 65,000 people on the Autism spectrum in North Carolina throughout their lifetimes.
Here’s what the schedule will look like the day of the event. You can register and pick up your packet starting at 7 a.m. and continuing all the way until the 5K begins at 9 a.m. The awareness walk will start at 10 a.m., and the awards ceremony will be at 10:30 a.m.
Be sure to stick around even after your chosen event is over. This day is geared toward family and will include a children’s play area, food trucks, music, refreshments, and local support resources.
So bring the kids and choose the event that’s right for you and your family. You’re all going to have a great time at the Eastern Run/Walk for Autism!
