About This Activity

As of today (3/13/2020) we are holding out hope that we can still move forward with the Racquet Run.  We continue to closely monitor the situation and will be making a go/no-go decision no later than 3/30/2020.  Should we have to cancel we will provide participants a few options regarding registration fees.  Thank you!
Join us during Autism Awareness Month for the inaugural ACEing Autism Dallas Racquet Run.  Both the 1K fun walk and 5K timed-run kick off from the UT Dallas Tennis Pavilion and give participants a glimpse of the beautiful campus. Following the walk and run get professionally stretched by The Stretch Zone!  Then join the family-friendly celebration that includes awards, music by Disc Jockeys Etc, Rebel Legion characters, a demonstration by Beyond Karate, face painting, bounce houses, arts and crafts from The Crayola Experience and more!
Want to do more to support the program? Help raise funds - either individually or as part of a team - to directly benefit local program participants. Donations will be used to support the Dallas scholarship fund, procure tennis equipment, and enable our athletes to participate in various tennis events at the local and state level.
