Autism Awareness NEPA Walk, Forty Fort, PA
We hope this message finds you and your families safe and healthy. Due to the continued stay at home order enacted by Governor Wolf, we, unfortunately, must postpone our event for April. While we don’t have a new date determined yet, we are hoping for a September or October date. We will be in touch once that date has been selected.

We have provided you with three options for your current registration. Please login to your Runsignup account and select the option that best suits your needs for your registration.

Thank you for your anticipated patience and continued support. Stay healthy and safe!

Continue to follow us on Facebook for updates on the race and to join us as we virtually observe Autism Awareness during the month of April.
