Steps for Autism

Join Northwest Autism Center for the 9th annual 5k Walk/run/roll Steps for Autism at Riverfront Park.

When the clock strikes noon on Saturday, April 27, hundreds of walkers and runners (and strollers!) are expected at Riverfront Park for Spokane’s 9th annual 5k Steps for Autism. The event caps off Autism Awareness Month and is being presented by Northwest Autism Center.

Steps for Autism is a unique opportunity for the community to come together and celebrate the lives and relationships of those touched by autism.  This annual event promotes community inclusion and integration; healthcare providers walking alongside clients, teachers walking alongside students, and families walking alongside neighbors demonstrating the care and investment in each other that our region is known for.   

In the vendor village, participants will find several autism-friendly businesses and resource providers throughout the event and available for questions. 

Rain or shine, the Spokane community is encouraged to join the fun and help make this the most caring stroll ever!  The event runs from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. with the 5k walk/run/roll beginning at noon at the Ice Age Playground.
