Thank you to our participants, sponsors, committee, and community members who made the 2019 5K & Family Fun Day a success. This family-friendly event includes on-stage entertainment, a kids zone and fun run, a Resource Fair, food vendors, a competitive 5K, and more! Together we raised over $170,000 for our local autism community! Visit ascv5k.org to see 2019’s au-some fundraisers and sponsors. Join us next spring for the 18th Annual event!

"I have been walking the ASCV 5K with my family for the past 4 years. I walk for my brother, Marky, who has Autism. This event brings together our friends and family to celebrate him and all that he does. I walk for my brother, who inspires me each and every day to be the best person I possibly can. He may be younger than I am, but he is my role model. I walk for my brother, who teaches me more than I could ever learn in school. He has taught me the importance that kindness, compassion, and perspective have on the life of an individual with special needs. I walk because there is nothing more rewarding than giving back to the community, especially to support someone you love."
