Calling all Superheroes!
2022 Race for Autism
This Autism Awareness month (April 2, 2022) do something "SUPER" to show your support (and acceptance) for those with autism by participating in the Race for Autism SUPERHERO 5K Run/ Walk and 1 Mile Family Fun Walk in beautiful Balboa Park!

                          Once rare, autism now affects 1 in every 44 children in the US today.
                                           That’s up from the previous 1 in 54 children just three years ago.

To help, the money raised by the Race for Autism stays in San Diego to increase inclusion opportunities for those who with autism by funding initiatives in areas of employer training, vocational training program for teens and young adults, secondary education, and enrichment programs. The Race also funds Teacher's grants providing educational programs and materials to classrooms throughout San Diego each year.

This family friendly event is a great way for those with a heart for autism to help raise autism awareness, acceptance and funding to improve the outcomes and opportunities for autistic individuals. THANKS to the support of people like you, NFAR has supported over 900 initiatives, and invested over 2 MILLION dollars to improve the opportunities for those on the autism spectrum.
Please join us on April 2, World Autism Awareness and Acceptance Day, as we return to Balboa Park for the 2022 Race for Autism Superhero 5K and be a SUPERHERO for autism!
