Event Details

Bring your friends & family and join us for the 5th 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.

This year we're including more kid friendly activities thanks to Indy Inflatables (there will be a toddler bounce house, a regular bounce house for older kids and a bounce house/slide combo), Twists to Remember and Hoosier Trail Rides! Children 6 years and younger are eligible to partake in the pony rides provided by Hoosier Trail Rides. Families will need to go to their stables to sign the waiver and then they will be able to ride a pony. Rides will be offered 9 a - 12 pm on the race day.

Anyone that attends the BACA Bolt must have a registration except for children that will remain in a stroller throughout the course. All registered adult attendees will receive a race t-shirt!

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. BACA is committed to the continuous education and training of its staff by hosting regular seminars and training sessions from its esteemed clinical team.
