Fitness Quest 10 Connect
Chelsea Asaro is a member at FQ10 and she is the parent of a child with autism. She does a lot for the autism community and she is the outreach specialist for the National Association for Autism Research. Their biggest fundraiser every year is the Race for Autism and was going to be cancelled because of the Coronavirus. They decided to not let this stop them and are going to do the event still! All you have to do is register for the event at www.raceforautism.org and then go outside and do a 5k run or a 1 mile walk with your family still adding by the social distancing rules that are in effect. It is a "super hero" themed run so get outside and have some fun and support a great cause!
Here is a message from Chelsea:
On Saturday, March 28, 2020, thousands of SUPERHEROES will come together in this virtual race to show their love and support for those with autism in the community. It’s going to be “Super!” As you know, this cause is very dear to me. Autism affects 1 in 59 children in the US today, and over 20,000 individuals right here in San Diego. 100% of the dollars we raise stays in San Diego to help improve opportunities for those with autism in our community. The Race provides funding for autism treatment programs, vocational training for young adults, parent programs, educational workshops, and funding to hundreds of local classrooms, benefiting thousands of San Diego children and families each year. Every dollar truly makes a difference for our children! Please join me on March 28th in Balboa Park and give as generously as you can. Your support is greatly appreciated. You can be a SUPERHERO for autism! Thank you for your support Fitness Quest 10
