Chloe K 5K 2017

Chloe K 5K 2017 | Run for Autism | Renssleaer Indiana | Chloe Rayburn | Jeff and Susie Rayburn

For the last 11 years, my in-laws have held the Chloë K 5K in Rensselaer, Indiana—a race that benefits the Organization for Autism Research—in honor of their daughter, Chloë. Thanks to community support, Jeff and Susie have raised $154,026 for Autism research!

While the Chloë K 5K raises money for autism research, the race has also become a community tradition that brings people and businesses from Rensselaer, Remington, Wolcott, and surrounding areas together for a great cause. I actually ran the race before ever meeting my husband, Zach. Little did I know when I was 15 that my husband was around there somewhere!

Every year, Jeff and Susie are blown away by the generous support of donors, volunteers, musicians, runners, and walkers, and 2017 wasn’t an exception.

It’s estimated that 1 in every 68 children is born with autism.

Autism is a neurological disorder that makes it difficult for autistic individuals to:

  • Engage with others in social interactions.
  • Communicate with others.
  • Behave and participate in activities typical of a child or person’s age.

The autism spectrum ranges from mild to severe, and every case is different, meaning no two autistic individuals are alike or face the exact same challenges.

The cause of autism is still unknown. While some believe the disorder is genetic, others believe it is caused by environmental factors. The Organization for Autism Research and Run for Autism hope to find the answer.

We were blessed with a rain-free race.

Chloe K 5K 2017 | Run for Autism | Renssleaer Indiana | Chloe Rayburn | Jeff and Susie RayburnLooking at the forecast up the race, race day was looking a little grim. However, checking the radar Saturday morning, we discovered that the storm was going to go around Rensselaer, Indiana. Talk about a blessing!

Many runners and walkers participated in this year’s race, and everyone finished to enjoy goodies from The Homestead Buttery & Bakery. See race results on Jeff Rayburn’s website.

Most notably, however, is that $20,120 was raised for autism research!
