Description

Welcome to the 10th Annual Alex’s 5K Run/Walk & Kids' K! 

We had hoped to be celebrating this milestone with everyone on our usual fast course at MacGregor Park, but the pandemic had other plans!  We're going all virtual this year but we have our same purpose and enthusiasm. Please join us in running to raise funds for autism charities in our community!

 

RACE PURPOSE: Alex's 5K is a fun, family friendly event that honors the life of Alex Jamrich by promoting autism awareness and raising money for research and services. Alex was autistic and passed away in 2010 at the age of 17.

 

CHARITIES: 100% of the race profits will go to autism-based charities. To date, we have donated almost $141,000 over the life of the race.  Our race beneficiaries are Avondale House  (Alex's school), the Westview School, and Autism Speaks-Houston More information about our beneficiaries can be obtained through the race website:  www.alex5k.com.
