Over 13 million children will be bullied this year. Not only are the effects of bullying on a child felt immediately, they can also be lifelong - or even tragic. That’s why The Parker Foundation for Autism and Child Development and other local organizations invite you to join us as we rally around our students, families, and our community to raise awareness of bullying, prevention efforts AND enjoy free family fitness activities at the Expo after the Race!

The Parker Foundation provides free resources to children with Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD) and related disabilities and their families through funding education, sports and arts programs. Our #BeABuddy 5K celebrates National Bullying Prevention Month, empowers our Peer Buddy Program, and unites the community in a campaign to keep all youth safe from bullying.
