Join us for another year of our successful virtual Challenge and the return of our in-person 5K, now celebrating its 20th Anniversary!

One event, several engaging ways to participate!  Choose your events, fundraise in support of the Autism Society of Central Virginia, and join us on May 14, 2022 to celebrate!

Our 2022 Challenge will feature four weeks of endurance activities, featuring our Run/Walk, Cycle, or our popular Let’s Move events.  Over the 30 days of the Challenge, participants can set goals, log activities, and fundraise to support the ASCV.

In addition to the Challenge, our 5K & Family Fun Day event is back and better than ever!  Join us in-person on May 14 at Crump Park for our 5K, Resource Fair, and family fun.  We'll cap off the Challenge with this ASCV tradition, now in its 20th year!

Each participant is also a fundraiser, with money raised supporting the Autism Society of Central Virginia and our mission to create connections, empowering everyone in the Autism community with the resources needed to live fully.  Create or join a Fundraising Team, sync your fundraising page with your Facebook page, and fundraise to support local individuals with autism and their families.

NEW THIS YEAR:  Participants can sign up for multiple events without an extra fee! For one price, you can register for one or more Challenge events as well as the 5K.  Choose your way to participate!

Register your team today, fundraise together, and join us for this fun and inspiring event as we honor and support our local autism community!


The Challenge

The Challenge begins on April 14 and ends at 10:30am on May 14, 2022.  Participants who choose the Virtual Walk/Run or the Virtual Cycle can set a distance goal to achieve during the Challenge, then complete and log their miles between April 14 and May 14.  Your goal is your own, whether it's 3.2 miles, 44 miles, or 300 miles!  You'll be able to track your progress on your Results page and earn badges to mark your milestones.  For those interested in participating without a focus on distance, choose the Let's Move event and track your fitness activities without worrying about a goal.  NEW THIS YEAR:  Participants can sign up for multiple Challenge events (and/or the 5K) at no additional cost!


The 5K & Family Fun Day

Our 2022 5K & Family Fun Day will serve as both the culmination of our Challenge and as our 20th Anniversary event, featuring our beloved annual 5K run/walk, Resource Fair, and Family Fun Day. Participants are invited to gather at Crump Park on Saturday, May 14th from 8-11 AM for fun and festivities, including the 5K race, live-streamed awards ceremony, and entertainment from our main stage as we celebrate our incredible community and 20 years of ASCV's Annual 5k. The event will also feature family friendly activities and a resource fair highlighting the work of our community partners. If you are registered for the Virtual Run/Walk Challenge or Let's Move, you can log your 5K participation as a Challenge activity!

The Autism Society of Central Virginia, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, is proud to be one of the region’s premier sources of education, advocacy, and support for individuals with autism, their families, and professionals. Autism is a developmental disability that occurs in all racial, ethnic, and socioeconomic groups. The prevalence rate of autism continues to rise, and currently the CDC estimates that an average of 1 in 44 children in the US meets the diagnostic criteria for autism. The ASCV serves as the local voice and resource for the Central Virginia autism community. Funds raised from the ASCV Challenge, 5K & Family Fun Day will provide much needed support, resources, and programs for local individuals with autism and their families. The funds raised here, stay here!
