For the second time in 11 years, we've made the difficult but responsible choice to not hold the Avondale 5K...well, not how you're used to it at least! Our number one priority is the health and safety of our volunteers, participants, and committee members, and as such, we've decided to take the A5K virtual this year! October is National Disability Awareness Month, and we've decided to bring awareness by making the entire month a challenge itself! From October 1 to October 31, you can complete the Avondale 5K and submit your results for fun and fame. In addition to the Virtual 5K, we've created the Charles Webb Challenge so anyone can participate, not just runners and walkers.

Have you ever been told you would never be able to accomplish something? Is there something you have always wanted to do?  The kids at the Charles Webb Center, children with special needs, have often been told that they "won't be able to" do things.  With the help of the center, they accomplish these things...and more!  Whether it's running a half a mile, running a 50K, or completing a century bike ride, see how far you can go. Then, please contact your friends and family and encourage them to sponsor your amazing feat.  Let's show everyone that, together, we can all go far.

COVID-19 won't stop us! If the Avondale 5K is a race you've done for years, don't miss this year! Our event is the largest annual fundraiser for the Charles Webb Center for children with special needs and developmental disabilities. The Center aids in each child's growth and development through educational programs that help develop sense of self-esteem, language, and preschool skills. Participant fees and sponsorships cover a vast amount of services including operating costs, paying for on-site nursing services, providing food and school supplies, staffing the entire center, paying for transportation costs, and allowing for educational outings. We need your help bridging the gap in this crazy year! Sign up for the race and Charles Webb Challenge today!
