Be sure to mark your calendar for the 9th Annual ONEHOPE Autism Care Today for Military Families 5k/10k and Family Festival on Saturday, April 20, 2019, to be held at Tecolote Shores Park in San Diego. Formerly known as ACT Today! Autism Care and Treatment, this race has truly become a favorite event among runners, military families, the autism community and families with school-aged children; and we hope you will join the approximately 1,000 + participants for another fun-filled event.
Since the 2011 inaugural event, this event has raised nearly $800,000 to benefit military families impacted by autism. Autism Care Today for Military Families is a dedicated fund working to improve awareness and delivery of effective autism services, providing financial assistance to military families to help defray out-of-pocket costs associated with autism treatments and other quality of life programs.
