Register for our 21st annual Flutie 5K! Our virtual event has a special twist…the race will virtually start with Dougie in his hometown of Natick, MA, and the finish line is at the entrance of the Buzz Lightyear ride in Disney – Dougies favorite superhero! Sign up to run solo or as a team to help Dougie run down to Florida while raising critical funds to help people and families with autism!
The Flutie Foundation has launched a fund to alleviate the many needs of the autism community during this crisis. We have raised over $100,000 in direct emergency cash assistance to several autism support centers throughout Massachusetts to immediately alleviate financial burdens families with children and adults with autism are facing.
