Step Ahead is a national network of college student-athlete directed running teams for kids ages 6-13 on the autism spectrum, as well as their neurotypical siblings.
Our programs strive to increase the self confidence and skill levels of the young runners by providing a positive, supportive environment. We emphasize social opportunities for both parents and children to make valuable connections in a welcoming community space.
Setting a new personal record, completing a lap, or finishing a race are exciting events that help children improve their self-confidence. Our main goals are for athletes to have fun and do their best!
