The Eagles Autism Challenge is an opportunity to join the team at Jefferson with longtime partners at the Philadelphia Eagles to make a positive difference, helping to generate new funding for autism research and treatment programs.
The one-day bike ride and family-friendly 5K run/walk will feature Eagles players, alumni, coaches, executives, cheerleaders and Swoop. Festivities will begin with a kick-off party at Lincoln Financial Field on Friday evening, May 18, and culminate Saturday, May 19, with a celebration on the field after crossing the finish line.
The Eagles Autism Challenge will direct 100 percent of participant-raised funds to autism research and/or programs at all beneficiary partner institutions—Jefferson and Jefferson Health, Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia and Drexel University.
Free registration is available for the next 100 runners/walkers and 35 bikers to join Team Jefferson. Use the promo codes Jefferson5K or JeffersonBike.
