Autisim 5K runs to Cooper-Young

The 7th Annual Opening Eyes to Autism 5K will make its inaugural run in Cooper-Young on Friday, April 29th.


A fundraiser for the children and families served by the Harwood Center or Autism Resources of the Mid-South, the race will kick off at 7 p.m. at Bluff City Sports, 769 S. Cooper. Registration is $25 through April 15th and $30 between the 16th and race day. To register, visit

Founded in 1957, the Harwood Center is a private 501(c)(3) non-profit agency that provides education, therapy, and support for Mid-South families and children who have developmental disabilities. The center serves clients from one of four regional locations. Through the Opening Eyes to Autism 5K, organizers hope not just to raise money but raise awareness for the center and Autism Resources of the Mid-South while also educating the community on the prevalence of Autism in Memphis.

Every camper should plan to bring a bicycle that is in good, working order for the riding portion of the day. If you don’t currently have one, come by the shop to buy one, before camp starts.
