Posted by Ralph Ranalli October 6, 2007 12:20 PM


The 8th annual Doug Flutie Jr. Foundation 5 K Road Race for autism will be run this year at 11 a.m. on Sunday. Oct. 14.

The race begins and ends at Natick High School (15 West St.) and all proceeds benefit the Doug Flutie Jr. Foundation for Autism. The event, sponsored by Eastern Bank, draws an average of 1,500 runners every year, and since 1999 has raised more than $200,000 for the foundation.

Registration begins at 9 a.m.; the registration fee is $20 in advance or $25 on race day. Runners can obtain more information and even register by visiting the foundation online.
