The 3rd annual LifeSkills Run for Autism will take place on October 16th at the Bowling Green Ballpark, home of the Hot Rods. It will include a 4-mile wheelchair race, a 4-mile run, and a 1-mile Family Walk. This year’s walk is being headed up by 11 year old Dylan Beckham, who is on a personal mission to raise $30,000 for autism. Racers will compete for one-of-a-kind baseball themed awards, schools will compete for pride and awards, and all pre-registered event participants will receive a commemorative shirt. There will be team mascots, family entertainment, games, inflatables, face painting, Purity ice cream, and much more, and all FREE.
100% of the proceeds go to the WKU Kelly Autism Program, so visit the website and register today to help young Dylan reach his goal!
