5K – Walk/Run for Autism Awareness

Date/Time: Sunday, April 26th, 2015, 10:00 am - 1:00 pm

On Sunday, April 26th, 2015, at 10:00 am, Ambergris Caye Elementary School (A.C.E.S.) will be hosting the first annual “Walk/ Run for Awareness” 5K in honor of Autism Awareness month (April). A.C.E.S. is the first school on Ambergris Caye with a substantially separate special education classroom. This classroom directly impacts students with disabilities and assists A.C.E.S. in our efforts to provide a quality education for all students.

It starts at Central Park at 10:00 am on Sunday, April 26. Runners and/or walkers will be going from Central Park to Banana Beach Resort then back to Central Park. There will be a post-race celebration at Central Park from 10:00 am – 1:00 pm with food, drinks and games.

Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), also known as Autism, is a lifelong developmental disability that affects brain development. Autism impacts a person’s social interactions, their communication and their behavior. Our primary goal for this event is to raise awareness about Autism and for all children living with disabilities here in San Pedro. We cordially invite you to attend this event and aid us in our goal of raising awareness.
