Race recap – Run Across the Spectrum 2016

Run Across the Spectrum 2016 was, once again, a huge success. This year more than 200 participants came out to celebrate Autism awareness and acceptance. A total of more than $15,000 was raised and will be used to host community events for children with autism and their families and to continue the education and support of Autism acceptance throughout the area. A silent auction was held during the running events, featuring art, products, gift cards, etc. from local area artists and vendors. Superheroes made appearances and a photo booth featuring an amazing puzzle piece balloon structure was available. If you missed it, check out the photo gallery to see the fun.
