Virtual Superhero Fun Run/Walk for Autism 2021

We are excited to announce the 11th annual Autism Connections Superhero FunRun/Walk for Autism will continue virtually this year!

Virtual Event

The Virtual Superhero FunRun/Walk is a fundraiser in support of Autism Connections Fredericton and Autism Awareness. This virtual event is unique as it allows for open access, from the freedom of your own home and community. Although the day of our event is scheduled for June 26th, 2021, you are not required to complete your run/walk on this day.

This year participants are not limited to running 5km or walking 2km. You are encouraged to be creative! Feel free to run, walk, swim, bike, horseback ride, paraglide, the sky's the limit! With the virtual platform, you and your family may participate in your neighbourhood, a public park, your yard or even a treadmill, this can be done whenever it is most convenient for you leading up to the day of the event!

On the 26th, there will be a Facebook live event with musical entertainment, competitions, draws and LOTS of prizes to win. We encourage you to send us videos and photos of you completing the walk/run so that we can post them and cheer you on!

How to register

It is required that everyone fills out this form and pay the registration fee prior to completing your run or walk. In this form you will choose whether you will be completing the walk, run, or other physical activity of your choice.

To walk it is $25 per family or $10 per individual. Running is $60 per family or $25 per individual. If teams are fundraising on our behalf, a registration fee will not be required. We will be accepting e-transfer or checks, if these methods do not work please email us. Once registered, you will receive a confirmation email. Participants will have their name entered in various draws to win prizes that will be taking place throughout the Facebook live event on June 26th.

Fundraising

If you are looking to help us further, we encourage you to fundraise on behalf of Autism Connections Fredericton!

Individuals, teams and families who fundraise beyond the registration prices, are NOT expected to pay an additional fee. Upon request, we will provide pledge sheets to make fundraising quick and easy. Although this year’s circumstances place certain limitations on what kind of fundraisers are possible, we encourage you to get creative! As an incentive, for every $100 raised your name will be automatically entered in a draw for a chance to win one of our grand prizes! As well there will be a grand prize for whoever fundraises the most on our behalf.
