Annual Hero Walk and Run for Autism

For the past fifteen years, the Autism Society of the Greater Capital Region has hosted a walk and race to bring our community together. In recent years, we’ve adopted a superhero theme to celebrate the triumphs of the children and adults with Autism whom we love and support. Families make creative costumes, design custom shirts, and enjoy a fun and active morning in the park.
