All proceeds from the Active for Autism 5K & Kids Dash will go to OAR’s Changing Lives Fund and will be used solely for direct research and programs support. 

In November, OAR will allocate the available funds to support new research studies. Our goal is to raise $80,000, enough to fund a new OAR research study and support OAR’s mission to apply research to the challenges of autism.  

The fund's name comes from OAR’s mission task: Raise Money. Fund Research. Change Lives. Through your support for the Active For Autism 5K & Kids Dash, you are directly supporting OAR’s ultimate objective, to change lives. Here’s how:
