Join The Learning Spectrum and Learning 4 Life Farm for the third annual TLS Alpaca Trot to benefit Learning 4 Life Farm job training for autism. We’re returning this year with a 1 mile fun walk/run AND a 5k trail run at beautiful Infirmary Mound Park in Granville. Kids, families, walkers and runners welcome! Invite your family and friends to sponsor you to help us build our job training farm for teens and young adults on the autism spectrum. And don’t forget your custom-made TLS Alpaca Trot Tshirt, designed by a TLS student on the autism spectrum in our annual Tshirt Design Contest. 5k registration fee includes a Tshirt, and 1 mile participants can order a Tshirt as an add-on. Please note, we are planning an in-person event with a virtual option for COVID safety.
The Learning Spectrum (TLS) provides educational and therapy services to preK-12th grade students on the autism spectrum in central Ohio. Learning 4 Life Farm is creating a 7-acre farm in Johnstown, Ohio with gardens and therapy alpacas to provide transition job training for teens and young adults on the autism spectrum, in partnership with TLS. Learning 4 Life Farm’s mission is to provide quality training for young adults on the autism spectrum and provide meaningful employment in the community upon completion of training. Come grow with us!
