Annual Autism Run

Posted:

LA CROSSE, WISCONSIN (WXOW)-- The La Crosse Area Autism Foundation held the 2nd annual Puzzled Run.

Hundreds of runners gathered at Myrick Park for this year's event. Organizers say they raised between $5000 and $6000. That money will benefit local families impacted by autism.

Also at the run, local organizations like the Partners in Excellence, which provides therapy to autistic kids.

"I have a friend who comes over a lot who is autistic, so I'm somewhat familiar with it," said Cody Harris, one of the runners. "I get to go out and race, but I'm also supporting a good cause at the same time."

If you want more information about the foundation, or if you are impacted by autism and need assistance, you can log-on to the website www.LAXAutism.org.
