Run Anywhere this 4th of July to Support Autism Speaks

This is a guest post by Autism Speaks’ staffer Shawnie Keenan.

The Autism Speaks 5K is only just days away!  This year is extra special in that we celebrate our 10th anniversary and are running in memory of the race’s first announcer, Chip Shooshan.  On Sunday, July 4, runners and walkers will come together and run/walk through the Potomac neighborhood looking to kick off their Independence Day weekend festivities with a real bang!  This year, we are introducing an entirely new way to run this event called “Run Anywhere.”  The concept was first introduced by Steve Kirstein who found out that there were a lot of people who were interested in participating but were, unfortunately, out of town!  So, what better way to get more people involved than by allowing them to essentially run this great event anywhere around the world and still receive the very stylish blue race tee shirt.  Without further adieu: if you are interested in running a 5k on July 4th and cannot join us in Potomac, please visit www.autismspeaks5k.org and click “Run Anywhere” to register!  Registration closes at 9 a.m. Eastern on Thursday, July 1, so register now.

Where will you be running this year?

    The 10th Anniversary Autism Speaks 5K dry-fit race shirt is really cool: it has the prevalence of autism, over the life of the 5K, on the back,….Great graphic!
