People Talking Together Pointing to Letters

The CrimsonRise Waterfront Run/Walk For Autism, on Sunday, 9.10.2023 is an inaugural event. The event promises to be more than a race; it will be a celebration of Nick D’Amora’s life and a commitment to continuing his legacy. It is an open invitation for communities to come together in solidarity, to support those with autism and to remember the trailblazing contributions of an extraordinary young man.

Nicholas illuminated the truth that autism is more accurately understood as a motor and sensory disorder, rather than a cognitive one. His legacy of hope, empowerment, and change will be the torch that lights our path.

Join us in raising awareness, breaking down barriers, and fundraising to meet the needs of this community.

Race Details

The Run/Walk will be along the scenic shore line and wooded trails of Wolfe’s Pond, Staten Island, and will be marshaled by race organizers. Time keeping, awards and run time records will be an integral part of this race.
