Each year, 5K Forward: Fast Track to Empowerment raises critical resources to empower people with autism and developmental disabilities to reach their fullest potential, live more independently, obtain competitive employment, and become integral members of their communities. This year, we expect our largest turnout yet at a new and exciting venue, so join hundreds of other participants in Central Park on July 9 to help support the thousands of individuals who are impacted by Birch Family Services each day.

We are seeking volunteers to help us on event day with event check-in, t-shirt distribution, refreshment distribution, water stations, route marshalls, etc. Once confirmed, we'll share additional details about the event and volunteer assignments.
