Event Details

Bring your friends & family and join us for the 4th Annual BACA Bolt for Autism 5K. This professionally timed event, hosted by the Behavior Analysis Center for Autism (BACA), will take place at beautiful Fort Harrison State Park. Proceeds from this event will go to benefit BACA Charities. BACA Charities' mission is to raise resources to support research in the field of ABA and families who support ABA. Some of the events funded in the past by BACA Charities are Youth Fun Night, Teen Karaoke Night and Teen Bowling Night, which are all adaptive programs offered at the Monon Community Center in Carmel, IN.

The BACA Bolt will be family friendly as there will be an activity tent available for children filled with outdoor games and activities from Lakeshore Learning Materials. Stay tuned for other announcements regarding other special guests!

*Those wanting to run and/or walk the course as well as receive a race t-shirt must still register for the event.

BACA uses the principles and procedures of Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) to teach language, social, self-help, academic, daily living and life skills to children with autism and related disorders in the greater Indianapolis area.
