4th Annual Autism Ribbon Run, Downtown Raleigh, Oct. 12

An estimated 16,000 North Carolinians suffer from autism, the country's third most prevalent developmental disability. Since 1970, the Autism Society of North Carolina has been helping families, individuals and communities come to terms with it, providing skills training, vocational options and advocacy.

On Saturday, Oct. 12, over 1,000 people are expected to walk, dash and roll through the streets of downtown Raleigh in the 4th Annual Autism Ribbon Run. The 5K event includes men's, women's, youth, master's and wheelchair divisions, with an easy 1-mile Fun Run and a "Tot Trot" for the younger crowd. It's an opportunity for those with the disability, their friends and families and those who just want to help out get to know each other and enjoy a morning of exercise and fun.

The starting line's at the corner of Blount and Martin Streets. The race begins at 9 a.m. For more information, call (919) 743-0204, or visit the Web site at
