The Glenholme School’s 5K Run for Autism

The Glenholme School held its fifth annual Run For Autism in mid-November as part of its tireless effort to raise awareness and funds for students with special needs.

The 3.1 mile race, held in Steep Rock Preserve along the Shepaug River of Washington, Connecticut, attracted 147 runners who stepped up to raise $2,500 to support Glenholme’s therapeutic programs. The event has become a community favorite with local business sponsors and area private school students enthusiastically volunteering and participating.

Devon Langworthy crossed the finish line at 18:56, taking first place overall. Anna Kallman easily earned first female finisher with a time of 22:56. Canines were incorporated in the mix as the top three dogs received well-deserved prizes.

Glenholme is celebrating its 50th anniversary as a school that has achieved worldwide acclaim for delivering meaningful life-changing results to students with anxiety, depression, ADHD, and those on the autism spectrum. We congratulate all the runners who made this event possible and recognizing the work needed for children and youth on the Spectrum.

Glenholme extends many thanks to its loyal race sponsors who continue to support the difference the school makes in many young people’s live including Steep Rock Association, Alarm Services & Fire Control Service Co, Inc., Marandola Fuel, Kent Station Pharmacy, Fast Track Timing, Rumsey Hall School, Scott’s Landscaping & Nursery, Full Circle Promo, and Washington Ambulance we and the students thank you.

Congratulations to all of the runners, walkers, and their canine companions. Race results can be found at
