Beta Tau

at Kent State University

Autism Sensory 5k and Walk

The Beta Tau Chapter of Alpha Xi Delta at Kent State University makes it a priority to contribute generously to various philanthropic causes in our community, including our own national philanthropy, Autism Speaks. Autism affects 1 in 68 and there is currently no known treatment for the disorder. We hope, through our efforts in fundraising and advocacy, and hopefully with your help, we can reduce that number.

We are so excited to announce that we will be holding our first Autism Sensory 5k and Walk on September 26, 2015. This event will be a fun and exciting way to raise money and awareness for our national philanthropic partner! The race will begin at 9:00am with registration and check-in starting at 8:00am. Check-ins will be held on Risman Plaza (next to the Kent State University student center) and the lope route will end in Manchester Field with a finish line celebration. 

This event is a 5k scenic tour through Kent State and also a shorter sensory walk. Those who are impacted by Autism are very familiar with and use their senses all the time; because of this we will have a walking path with sensory and educational stations to help raise awareness at this event. These sensory stations will range from feelings and pressures to sounds and more, and will be a great comfortable learning environment for all. Registration forms are available here on our website and we look forward to making this event successful with your help!
