Triangle Run For Autism

I’m so excited for this 5k that I just signed up for! My sister worked at a school for children with autism for a few years and loved it! The children that she met and helped along the way brought her such happiness and a feeling of accomplishment that is amazing when you work with kids. That experience has brought on a new look when it comes to autism for all of us.

I am not the greatest when it comes to working with children with autism, as it takes much more patience than with other kids, but I’ve found a way that I can donate to the cause while doing something I love! My sister sent me the link to a 5k run in Raleigh on October 12th that she suggested I sign up for, so tonight I did.

A couple of years ago I did a run for Autism here in the area that I enjoyed, BUT no one told me it was a trail run! WHAT? I know, right! Talk about a surprise when I arrived at the course on race day! I made it through… barely, but I made it. This time I plan to be prepared ahead of time by looking at the map and scoping out the area BEFORE race day!!

If you’re in the NC area and are looking for a race for a good cause, check this run/walk for Autism out HERE or you can get more information on their facebook page HERE

Happy Running!
