Once again this year I am excited to serve as Sponsorship Chair for the Autism Speaks July 4th 5K Run – 1 Mile Walk, presented by BOWA. This year marks the 14th Anniversary of the Autism Speaks 5K, and BOWA’s 11th year as a key sponsor. Thanks to the ongoing support of all the generous sponsors, donors and participants, the race has contributed over $2.5 million to Autism Speaks.
This community oriented event is for both competitive runners and families with children of all ages, and is a wonderful start to Independence Day.
I hope you will consider supporting the Richie’s Racers team, in honor of my son Richard. This year there are four great ways to participate – simply follow the link that works best for you:
