We are very excited to start our own Run Club, thanks to William Greer, avid marathoner from Coalition of Texans with Disabilities! We hope to start in the middle or end of June and hold Run Club at Austin High School. We welcome parents and caregivers, as well as siblings, to join the club and run with us! We will start off with very short distances, but hope to have some of our runners work up to running a 5K or greater! No previous running experience is necessary, and all fitness levels are welcome! The group is for all ages, but probably best suited for adults, tweens and teens due to the distances and stamina we hope to work up to, however, if you have an elementary aged child that loves to run and could participate, please feel free to join!
We will begin next Tuesday 6/13/17 at Austin High School track, from 6:30-7:30 pm, and continue every Tuesday & Thursday. Austin High is located at 1715 Cesar Chavez St, Austin, TX 78703.
We need volunteers to run with the group! If you’d like to volunteer please give us your contact information here so we can email you with details. You do not need to have a child or adult with autism in the program to volunteer! We need a few runners to stay with the group and assist William in encouraging runners, keeping the group together, etc.
Individuals with autism should register here. For those under 18, a parent or caregiver must stay on site at the track during run club. Parents/caregivers can choose to observe or participate!
There is no charge to participate. Please email Caroline with questions at Caroline@texasautismsociety.org.
