Hero 5K Run for Autism

April 21 @ 9:30 am - 11:00 am

Hero 5K for Autism 2024

Unleash your inner hero at the Hero 5K for Autism! As we launch into Autism Acceptance Month, don your superhero gear, gather your allies, and hit the pavement for a cause that needs a hero like you. Whether you run like the wind or prefer a leisurely stroll, every step you take transforms you into a real-life hero, making a lasting impact on the lives of autistic individuals and families across the Greater Hudson Region. Join us on this heroic quest – because every hero wears running shoes, but they’re just as mighty for a walk!

New This Year!! Hydrate with a cause – Every participant receives a unique refillable aluminum water bottle, making each step you take a sustainable stride towards supporting autism awareness and inclusion!
