The One Run 5k is the first event in The One Campaign, a fundraiser to benefit Emerald Coast Autism Center (ECAC), a non-profit school for children with autism located in Niceville, Florida. The concept of The One Campaign stems from the new CDC autism prevalence rate of 1 in 88. With the dramatic increase in the number of people with autism, it is our goal to raise funds and awareness by showing just how many of us know that ONE individual with autism. Perhaps your son, daughter or grandchild is the ONE. The point is, with such a high incidence rate, more and more of us are connected to someone whose life is affected by autism. All funds raised by The One Campaign will support the ECAC Scholarship Fund - a Fund established to assist families of children with autism who otherwise could not afford the services their children so desperately need.The Course:This beautiful and challenging 5K course begins on Bay Street in Val-p across from the senior center and runs from Bay Street to Bayshore, where runners will run along the bayou. It is a sunset run, starting at 4:30 P.M.Post-Race Party: After the run, please join us for live music, drinks and amazing food from Tucker Duke's Lunchbox. Prizes: Prizes will be awarded for top 3 in 10 age groups Male and Female. There will also be a special prize to the 88th runner overall! In addition, we will be giving away raffle prizes and free food for all runners.Custom ONE of a kind The One Run shirts are limited to the first 200 runners before September 15th.
