Calling all Superheroes!
2024 Race for Autism

This Autism Awareness month 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!

 Autism affects 1 in every 36 children in the US today.
That’s up from the previous 1 in 44 children just two years ago.


To help, the money raised by the Race for Autism stays in San Diego to increase inclusion opportunities for those with autism by funding initiatives in areas of early identification, education, social skills training, vocational programs for teens and young adults, parent support, employer training, 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 1,000 initiatives, and invested
over 2.3 MILLION dollars to expand options for those on the autism spectrum in our community.

Please join us on April 6th for the 20th Anniversary 2024 Race for Autism Superhero 5K Run and One Mile Family Walk as we kick off April’s Autism Awareness month in beautiful Balboa Park and be a SUPERHERO for autism!
