Let’s run for autism

Fundraise for AutismBC when you run, walk, or roll the Vancouver Half Marathon & 5K virtual race between June 1 and June 30 or in-person on June 25!


What moves you?

AutismBC is excited to join the 2023 Vancouver Half-Marathon & 5K Race as a charity partner!  

Whether you’re looking for a serious challenge or a fun activity for the whole family, friends or colleagues, sign up for the Vancouver Half Marathon Charity Challenge to support AutismBC. Take part as an individual, join a team, or create your own to run, walk, or roll for autism. Choose from a variety of options, both VIRTUAL and IN-PERSON, from the 21K or 5K, to the 1K Kids Run or Threepeat Challenge!  

Make a difference!

When you register for the race, you can create your own fundraising page where you can share your story, upload photos, tell people ‘what moves you’ to run, and invite them to support you with a donation to AutismBC. You can share the direct link to your page via email or social media with your friends and family to support you in the run. It’s that easy!  

100% of what you raise goes directly to AutismBC to fund autism programs, services, and initiatives throughout the province.

In the past 2 years we have had over 65 participants across the province who raised $41,601 for AutismBC!
