2017 Run for Autism 5K

Team Connor

Hi, and welcome to our team page. 

As many of you know, my son Connor has Autism.  Diagnosed at 3 years old, I turned to VIA (Virginia Institute of Autism) to gain as much information about Autism as I possibly could with a Workshop called Shaping the future.  I learned so much in just a week.  They gave me advice and resources that were invaluable.  Our journey with Autism began.  Connor is now 7 and thriving.  I am very grateful to VIA for helping so many children and families in the community, not just ours.

On April 22nd, and part of Autism Awareness month, we're running in the Virginia Institute of Autism's Run for Autism 5k. We hope you'll help us reach (or exceed) our fundraising goals to help support VIA and its mission.

The Virginia Institute of Autism provides life-changing services to families challenged by autism. Their work helps to make Charlottesville a more humane, more inclusive, place to live.

By participating in the Run for Autism, YOU are a part of that mission. You help us make this event successful year after year. 

Please join us by running or walking with our team or by making a donation to our team today.

Thanks to everyone for your support,

Kelly and Connor Perry
