Friday and Saturday was our school’s first Step Up for Autism Fun Run/Walk. On Friday, we had a 1 mile family walk for parents to walk around the track with their children. Saturday, there was a 5K Fun Run/Walk. Saturday started out with lots of rain and lightning, but cleared up before the 5K started. We were so thankful. I think our turnout would have been even bigger had it not started out raining.
I loved being on a committee where we had such a variety of strengths that everything came together because of all the talents the group possessed. Especially those who were able to get businesses to sponsor the cost of all the t-shirts. The event raised over $7,000 that will go toward the purchase of new sensory equipment and items for our students with autism. They will also use some of the money to create a lending library for parents.
Cole kept shying away from the camera, but here he is with his friend and our Superintendent.

Our wonderful committee after a hot day Friday outside.
Even our mascot isn’t immune to a leg cramp. :
Cole had the important job of holding the finish line sign on Saturday.
I cannot wait for this event next year!
