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 celebrate the neurodiversity in our community. 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. In 2018, 1 in 59 children were diagnosed with an Autism Spectrum Disorder, and early intervention affords the best opportunity to support healthy development that delivers benefits across the lifespan.
The BBRC organizes the All in for Autism 5K/10K Run/Walk in Bellevue in April each year. Now in its 14th year, this event has become Bellevue’s premier running event that caters to enthusiasts and families alike and has successfully attracted over2,500 people. The event raises over $140,000 each year, thanks to the sponsorship and long term support from local organizations such as Escape Outdoors, The Bellevue Collection, Starbucks, Amazon and the City of Bellevue. Funds raised from this event support Autism and other Rotary programs and organizations that benefit children and families in the Bellevue community and internationally. Kindering is the primary partner beneficiary of the All in for Autism event.
Kindering embraces children of diverse abilities and their families by providing the finest education and therapies to nurture hope, courage, and the skills to soar. Founded in 1962 by five Bellevue-area mothers of children with disabilities, Kindering is the largest intervention center in Washington State, one of the three largest centers in the nation, and notably the most comprehensive. Annually, Kindering now serves 5,800 children of diverse abilities and their families by providing the finest education and therapies to nurture hope, courage, and the skills to soar.
BBRC continues to play a key role to grow the All in for Autism event with their leadership, by bringing the community of businesses and residents together in support of the the premier running and family friendly gathering in Bellevue, while raising awareness for Autism. The BBRC is proud of our association and long-term partnership with Kindering, which supports our vision to serve our local and world communities, providing systemic and enduring change.
