Due to the recent and ongoing impacts of Hurricane Ian felt by the Greater Florida community, the decision has been made to postpone to Flutie 5K for Autism of Orlando Florida until Spring of 2023. 

New race date TBD in March of 2023. We will update this race page and all registered runners once a new date has been confirmed!

The Flutie Foundation and nonPareil institute thank you for your understanding as we work to best support the entire Florida community during these difficult times. If you have questions, please email emichaud@flutiefoundation.org.
