Join BOWA for the 15th Annual Autism Speaks 5K Run/1 Mile Walk


Richie’s Racers – Beachside 2014

Once again this year I am thrilled to announce that BOWA will be a co-presenting sponsor of the Autism Speaks July 4th 5K Run – 1 Mile Walk.  This year marks the 15th Anniversary of the Autism Speaks 5K, and BOWA’s 12th year as a key sponsor.  Thanks to the ongoing support of all the generous sponsors, donors and participants, the race has contributed over $2.5 million to Autism Speaks.

Celebrating 15 years of progress and hope in our community, this event is for both competitive runners and families with children of all ages, and sure to be a wonderful start to Independence Day.Print

I hope you will consider supporting the Richie’s Racers team, in honor of my son Richard.  This year there are four great ways to participate – simply follow the link that works best for you:

  1. Donate by visiting the Richie’s Racers team page and making a general donation
  2. Sign up for Richie’s Racers to run or walk on July 4th in Potomac
