The 2nd Annual “Out Run Autism” 5K walk/run planned for this Saturday, March 30th, will follow with a “Breakfast of Autism Champions” at the finish line in front of the Press Box at 29 East First Street in Oswego.

The breakfast buffet will run from 9:00-11:00 a.m. for a nominal fee with proceeds going to the Oswego County Autism Task Force. The breakfast is made possible by the generous sponsorship of The Press Box, Bosco’s Meats, Davis Bros., Renzi Brothers, and Eagle Beverage and is open to participants of the 5k, spectators, and all community members who would like to support the cause.

The 2nd annual run/walk will kick off at 8:30 a.m. in front of the Press Box Restaurant taking participants through Oswego's East side and scenic Fort Ontario. “Having the local support of many businesses will once again contribute to the success of this event for our Autism community,” noted Julie Chetney, Race Director. “Our hope is that the community comes out on Saturday to run, walk, cheer on, or have a great breakfast all in support of local children and families who have been touched by Autism Spectrum Disorder.”

Registration is open until noon on Thursday, March 28th by going to www.auyertiming.com. Limited same day registration spots will be available. Donations can also be made on the registration site.
