Description of Race Events

“Strides for Autism” is a sanctioned 5K run and 1 mile fun run/walk. Our 5K will start at 8:00 am and our 1 Mile at 9:00 am. Funds from Strides for Autism will support the mission of Utah Autism Academy by helping to "connect our worlds". By providing resources to better gain government, support, increase community resources, train and advocate in the public education sector and provide opportunities for families impacted by autism and the general community to more effectively come together, we have a broader reach for appropriate and successful inclusion. as well as provide families the opportunity to gather and celebrate their loved ones with autism.
This event is organized by a Utah family who is dedicated to supporting their grandson, nephew, cousin, brother, son and friend Riley Nelson. Riley was diagnosed with autism at 23 months of age after his extensive speech vocabulary diminished to nothing. He is currently 15 years old and continues to work to make sounds but is still considered non-verbal. Riley’s family is dedicated to providing him with the best support possible and in this effort continues to change the future for ALL individuals affected by autism.
