5K, 10K (walk or run) & Kids' Fun Run at Stanford
We are fundraising to support the Stanford Autism Center because new research is needed to improve outcomes for children with ASD and comprehensive clinical services makes real differences for families. Your support is crucial—it means that Packard Children’s, a not-for-profit hospital, can treat any child in the community who needs specialized care, regardless of their family’s financial means.
Thank you for helping us reach our goal to support autism research!
