All in for Autism 5K/10K Run/Walk – April 23rd, 2017

Bellevue Breakfast Rotary Club Announces Their All in for Autism 5K/10K Walk/Run

Fundraiser Event  •   Organized by Fundraising: Bellevue 10K Run/Walk
By Kaj Pedersen

Bellevue, WA. – January 21, 2017 – On April 23, the Bellevue Breakfast Rotary Club (BBRC) will be hosting their All in for Autism annual 5K/10K Walk/Run on a route that takes participants through Bellevue’s streets.  In its eleventh year, this event has become Bellevue’s premier running event that caters for enthusiasts and families alike.  Funds raised from this event go to: Kindering, as well as other identified agencies, plus Rotary projects that benefit children and families locally and internationally.

The All in for Autism 5K/10K Run/Walk is a family event brought to you by the Bellevue Breakfast Rotary Club (BBRC) to raise awareness for Autism and other related disorders. The All In for Autism event is put on to show support for families and/or caregivers, affected by this growing neurological condition, and to thank those in our community who work to provide support and success to these individuals, in the hopes of expanding the circle of care. 1 in 68 individuals are affected by autism, and show impairment in the following areas: communication, repetitive patterns of behavior and social skills.

The event will offer a challenging 10K (6.22 miles) course, as well as a 5K (3.31 miles) course for the whole family. There is also a non-competitive half-mile Kids’ Dash open to all kids 10 and under.  On race day, participants are invited to visit the Race Village to visit event sponsor booths and vendor exhibits after the event for the post-race party.

“Bellevue Breakfast Rotary’s commitment to the All in for Autism event allows our club to play its part in recognizing the sterling work carried out by families and caregivers who support those individuals affected by Autism. Our goal is to expand the circle of care through awareness and we call on the community to support us on April 23rd” said Mike Ralph, President of the Bellevue Breakfast Rotary Club.

The BBRC membership is dedicated to “service above self” and we derive much toward this goal through the contributions of our dynamic membership and local businesses.  Together, let’s make a difference! If you are a runner, volunteer, and/or sponsor, sign up today and show your commitment!  Please go to our website for more information.

It's Official - We're a "Visionary" Member

By Paul Osborn


In previous years we’ve sponsored WA DECA’s Community Service Prize for $2,000.  This year we continue our support by sponsoring Bellevue HS Chapters directly, and have joined DECA as a ‘Visionary Member’ at $480.

From Brent Mason:

The support received from the Bellevue Breakfast Rotary Club in the form of a Visionary level membership helps our student members leverage this “experience” to become academically prepared, community oriented, professionally responsible, experienced leaders.  In the end, it just might be the most impactful $480 that the club will give in 2017.  Thank you for BBRC for making a difference.
