Magnuson Park, Seattle
On August 30, 2014, ASW is hosting the Heroes for Autism 5K/10K Run to support first responders training in Washington State!
The run is at Magnuson Park in Seattle, which is located only minutes away from the University of Washington and down town. This location provides the space and demonstrates the true beauty of our state making it the ideal location for this event! Included in the day’s event are family fun festivities, walks, demonstrations, and resource information.
With funds raised from this event, the Autism Society of Washington is taking a giant leap forward making our state safe for those affected by Autism.
Come to Seattle for Labor Day and enjoy the Bumbershoot Festival at the Seattle Center as well!
