Potomac 5K Huge Success on Independence Day

Amid classic DC humidity, nearly 1300 runners and over 400 walkers celebrated Independence Day in Potomac, Maryland at the 13th Annual Autism Speaks 5K. Over 250 people joined the race remotely by running or walking their 5K around the world to help us spread awareness. Thanks to presenting sponsor BOWA, co-chairs Ed and Anne Nuttall, 100+ teams and countless sponsors and community supporters for helping make this our most successful Autism Speaks 5K ever - $273,000 and counting.
