Join Us For The 3rd Annual Sandia 5K/10K!
It is estimated that one in five people will experience a disability in their lifetime. The money raised through the Sandia 5K/10K is vital to Ability Connection as we advocate for the rights of people with disabilities, teach the letters of the alphabet to a child with autism, or train an adult with a head injury to re-enter the workforce through the use of adaptive technology. Whether you join as an individual or as a corporate team you can run for a reason.
Runners will enjoy an exciting 5K/10K race on a paved course, starting and finishing at Eclipse Aerospace. The Start/Finish area offers a unique behind the scenes look at the Eclipse Aerospace hangers, ABQ Sunport and the Sandia Mountains. After the race, relax and enjoy views of aircraft landing with music and a refreshing beer garden!
Proceeds from the Sandia 5K/10K will benefit individuals with disabilities through the services provided by Ability Connection New Mexico (ACNM), a nonprofit organization. ACNM’s mission is to support freedom and independence for children and adults with disabilities.
Runners and spectators are encouraged to wear navy blue shoelaces on race day in honor of the children and adults with disabilities.
