Why I Run: ‘Not all heroes wear capes’ at the Eden Autism 5K

Since registration for the Eden Autism 5K & 1-Mile Fun Run first opened, Ian Wright has been one of our top fundraisers. He’s currently raised more than $1,500 for our participants!
“Not every hero wears a mask or carries a shield,” Ian said. “Every day the team at Eden suit up, bring their hearts and minds and purpose to changing lives, families and communities, one task, one step, one smile at a time. Sheila and I are running on this one day that we are asked to suit up and give them a little help. Because another hero said it best: ‘Anyone who does anything to help a child in his life is a hero to me’ — Fred Rogers.”
We are so grateful to have heroes like Ian help support us as we work to improve the lives of individuals with autism. 
Ian is running with the Eden IT Team. To donate to their team, visit their page.
The 2019 Eden Autism 5K & 1-Mile Fun Run/Walk will be held Sunday, October 6 at the Eden School, 2 Merwick Road, Princeton. To learn more information about the 5K, or start your own team, visit
