Founded in the year 2000 as a Flutie Foundation community event in Natick, MA, the Flutie 5K for Autism has grown to a national event. Whether as a runner, walker, or a donor joining the Flutie 5K means supporting a movement that is helping people with autism live life to the fullest.  Additionally, there is a virtual option that allows people to participate wherever they may be.
