The Chase Academy's 2nd Annual VIRTUAL 5K Run & Walk
September 19, 2020 - October 24, 2020

All over!

In recognition of World Autism Awareness Month (April), The Chase Academy, a non-profit school for children with Autism located in South Daytona FL, is asking the businesses and residents of Volusia County to become a SuperHero by participating in our C.A.P.E. Crusaders' 2nd Annual 5K VIRTUAL Run & Walk. This 5K was originally scheduled as a Beach Run & Walk for April.  Since the lockdown in March, we have been waiting patiently to launch our event.  THIS VIRTUAL 5K RUN & WALK IS IT!

Proceeds will benefit our C.A.P.E. Crusaders monthly donor program which facilitates The Chase Academy's Programs for Enrichment (C.A.P.E.). This program provides the funding required to enhance the learning experience for our students beyond the academics that are covered by tuition, both inside & outside of the classroom, through technology (Smartboards in classrooms, iPads for elementary learning), cultural activities (ballet, music & theatrical performances, museum exhibits) & other enrichment activities (weekly music therapy, school garden, outdoor playground and Life Skills classes such as cooking) at no additional cost to our students' families.

Participants receive an Event T-Shirt, Cape & Mask
Participants who do not register by 10/3 are not guaranteed a T-shirt.
