The New England Center for Children’s 11th Annual Walk/Run for Autism is this Saturday, May 6th in Southborough.

Runners and walkers, including many from Southborough, are running to raise awareness and funds for autism research and education.

NECC promotes:

Don’t miss out on your chance to participate in this professionally timed race run through the beautiful neighborhoods of Southborough, MA.

Not a runner? That’s okay too – you will be in good company with the many walkers, and we encourage you to stay for the post-race cookout with excellent food, live entertainment and plenty of booth vendors!

And while I’d love to see you there – you don’t even need to step outside to support the fundraiser. You can also help by sponsoring one of the runners or walkers already registered.

For those of you who are planning to come out. . .
