About This Activity

Come join us on April 25, 2015 at 9:00 am for a fun-filled morning and help make a difference in the lives of children affected by autism and their families for our 3rd Annual Hope for Autism 5K and Fun Run. 1 in 68 children is diagnosed with autism making it more common than childhood cancer, juvenile diabetes, and pediatric AIDS combined. Race proceeds directly benefit the Hope Center for Autism, a 501(c)(3)nonprofit organization which provides services to young children with autism and their families.

FREE race day t-shirts with priority given to those who register by April 9, 2015.  If registering after April 9th, t-shirts are on a first-come, first-serve basis during packet pickup. 

NEW LOCATION:  Race packets can be picked up on April 24, 2015 from 10:00am-6:00pm at Episcopal Church of the Redeemer Sunday School Building located at 504 Tech Drive Ruston, LA or at the event.

Registration fee will increase to $30 day of the event for adults and $20 for kids. 


Honor a special person in your life who has Autism by participating as a team. This is a great way to get family, friends, and co-workers involved in spreading Autism awareness. Organizations and businesses are encouraged to form teams as well. The largest team will receive recognition and an award.


Food and Live Entertainment
Thanks to the help of volunteers from Leadership Lincoln, we are expanding to a Family Fun Day!  Bring your blankets and lawn chairs to join us for a post race jambalaya lunch and live entertainment.   Numerous carnival games and bounce houses will be on site.


Race Management
