RUN FOR AUTISM Sponsorship

OAR’s signature fundraising series, the RUN FOR AUTISM is an endurance fundraising program that began in 2003.  Since then over 7,500 athletes have dedicated their miles to autism research and raised over $7 million dollars.

Becoming a sponsor of the RUN FOR AUTISM program allows your company’s name or brand to be associated with a great cause and be seen by people across the U.S. and internationally.  This year, in addition to the Marine Corps Marathon in Washington, DC, where the RUN FOR AUTISM program began, OAR’s charity runners will cross finish lines at races in London, Chicago, New York City, Berlin, Houston, Napa Valley,  and many other places across the U.S.  Many others will race over and under obstacles and crawl through mud, while some seek the endurance challenges of triathlons and IRONMAN events.  In total, this year an estimated 1,000 or more charity athletes will form our largest endurance fundraising team ever!

Sponsorship opportunities include: being a national sponsor, focusing your interest on one team in one city, or select from a list of targeted sponsorship opportunities that support our runners and autism research.
