Autism Society - The Heartland's 5K/1K Fun Run will now be VIRTUAL on September 19, 2020!

We would like to thank Worlds of Fun for their continued support and help moving forward in planning this event. Please visit our FAQs page for more information about the switch to a virtual event! There is still time to register HERE!

After continuing to consult with local officials, and in an abundance of caution, Autism Society - The Heartland made the decision to CANCEL or POSTPONE all in-person August 2020 events. We are exploring options to reschedule the events and provide virtual options. Our physical office at the KU Edwards Campus will remain closed throughout the entire month of August.
THANK YOU to our current 5K/1K Fun Run Sponsors!
