Outrun Autism 5K

Haldane students raise funds

On Saturday, June 11 at 9 a.m., students from Haldane High School are holding their second annual Outrun Autism 5K Run/Walk, with all proceeds going to the Putnam County Autism Resource Organization (PARC). Last year, the 5K was held on Haldane’s campus, but this year it will loop around town, starting and ending at the gazebo with a route similar to the Turkey Trot.

The race this year is being organized by Alexandria Gariepy (senior) and Ruby McEwen (junior). They chose to have the race again this year because they want to give back to the community. Gariepy’s brother has autism and she says this project hits home for her. For more information, visit active.com.
