This July, make sure to sign-up for what will be a brilliant family fun day at Dublin’s Corkagh Park. On Sunday, July 30th, the ‘AsIAm 5K Run4Autism’ takes place with lots of fun and entertainment on offer.

Celebrating its 5th birthday, this year’s Run4Autism is set to be the best yet with lots of fun activities happening on the day.

Members of the autistic community and the wider public are encouraged to sign-up to what is to be a fun and inclusive day raising much needed funds for autism services to support individuals and families. You don’t need to be a regular runner to take part as all abilities are welcome to walk or run the 5k route known as ‘Georgia’s Way’.  

Kicking off at 12 noon, the day will have lots of fun and entertainment for all including face painters, mini-zoo, magicians, music, and ice-cream.

Speaking about the upcoming event CEO, AsIAm, Adam Harris said: “This event is a critical fundraising event for AsIAm, in order for the organisation to continue to offer the supports we currently do, we need to raise over €2 million each year. The money we raise goes directly to support all of the services we offer to the autistic community throughout the year, including the Autism Information Line and a range of social and employment programmes. We need your support to continue the work we do to give autistic people the same chance.”

Mum Ciara Jones says: “The AsIAm 5k run, is such a magical day for families, it is day that brings families from all over Ireland together. It is an inclusive event that we as a family look forward to every year. This event allows you to connect with other families and create that all important conversation. It is a day that is filled with fun and joy for individuals and families.”

In signing up for this event, all participants will receive branded merchandise, a medal, and refreshments. AsIAm are encouraging people and groups to fundraise whilst they partake in the event to drive much needed funds for autism services.
