The Autism Society of the Mahoning Valley will be celebrating autism families with the annual Mahoning Valley Warrior event on Saturday, June 4 at the Canfield Fairgrounds.

The event starts at 9:00 a.m. and is for autism families, as well as athletes throughout the Valley. It will consist of a 5K, an individual people-powered tractor pull and two strongman events.

Athletes, runners, walkers and groups of any combination of those interested can participate in any singular event or choose from any of the events including the tractor pull, the Kids Fun Run or the Valley Autism 5K.

In addition, there will also be a one-mile Autism Support Walk for community support and autism families. 

Presented with the support of the Knapp Center for Childhood Development, the event also features the region's largest special needs resource fair to bring together local information and contacts for families affected by Autism and other special needs.
