c.a.p.e. crusaders 3rd annual

VIRTUAL 5K walk & run

April 1, 2021 ~ April 30, 2021

In your neighborhood, gym, at the mall, on a track, at the park, or

even the treadmill. Walk, run or fly from ANYWHERE you choose!

In recognition of World Autism Awareness Month, The Chase Academy is asking the businesses and residents of Volusia County to become a Super Hero by participating in our C.A.P.E. Crusaders 3rd Annual Virtual 5K Run & Walk.  Proceeds will benefit our C.A.P.E. Crusaders monthly donor program which facilitates The Chase Academy's Programs for Enrichment (C.A.P.E.). This program provides the funding required to enhance the learning experience for our students beyond the academics that are covered by tuition, both inside & outside of the classroom, through technology (Smartboards in classrooms, Ipads for elementary learning), cultural activities (ballet, music & theatrical performances, museum exhibits) & other enrichment activities (weekly music therapy, school garden, outdoor playground and Life Skills classes such as cooking) at no additional cost to our students' families.
