• Running-5K - 5K Timed Run
  • Walking-5K - 5K Walk


The JUSTin HOPE Foundation is a local nonprofit that helps families affected by autism and other neurodevelopmental disorders by providing supplies and/or opportunities that will have a meaningful impact on the family as a whole.  

This is our 7th annual Spring Forward for Autism 5K run/walk event.  Last year we hosted 800 people and hope to continue to grow each year.  It is a wonderful opportunity for community members to come together to show their support for one another.  

The event takes place within the UNR campus.  We have a kids' corner that is complete with bounces houses, face painter, balloon twister and more!  We have an awesome raffle and silent auction.  We also have local vendors displaying their services and products.

Please join us in support of such a worthy cause!
