The Beacon Supports Out Run Autism 5K

OSWEGO – The Beacon Hotel will once again support the Autism Community as a top sponsor of the 4th annual “Out Run Autism” 5K.

“We are very thankful to have the continued support of The Beacon Hotel and the Avery family this year,” said Oswego County Autism Task Force President Tammy Thompson.

The run/walk will take participants through Oswego’s east side, scenic Fort Ontario area on April 6.

Spectators and supporters who opt out of the 5K can also participate by enjoying a delicious meal for a great local cause.

The OutRun Autism 5k and “Breakfast of Autism Champions” will benefit the Oswego County Autism Task Force who provides Autism Awareness and creates possibilities for those touched by Autism Spectrum Disorder in Oswego County.

The 5k run will kick off at 8:30 a.m. in front of the Press Box Restaurant on East First Street in Oswego with awards to follow.

All runners/walkers looking to celebrate the cause post-race or supporters looking to cheer on participants can meet up at the Press Box and enjoy the “Breakfast of Autism Champions” (from 9 – 11 a.m. for additional cost paid upon service to the Press Box) and proceeds will go be donated to the event as well.

“We are hopeful that many will come out once again for this event despite our late winter weather,” said Julie Chetney, race director. “Supporting local children and families who have been touched by Autism Spectrum Disorder with this beautiful 5K route and delicious breakfast is a great way to support so many in our community.”
