Unleash your inner hero at the Hero 5K for Autism! As we launch into Autism Acceptance Month, don your superhero gear, gather your allies, and hit the pavement for a cause that needs a hero like you. Whether you run like the wind or prefer a leisurely stroll, every step you take transforms you into a real-life hero, making a lasting impact on the lives of autistic individuals and families across the Greater Hudson Region. Join us on this heroic quest – because every hero wears running shoes, but they're just as mighty for a walk!
