Join us for our 7th Annual Pacing 4 Pieces – A RACE 4 AUTISM! Benefiting All 4 Autism and the Autism Resource Center of the Pee Dee, this event brings together our community to celebrate those with autism and their families.

Autism is the heart and “sole” of this race. Pacing 4 Pieces was created to bring awareness of Autism Spectrum Disorder and increase local support and resources for our ASD Community.

Not a runner? Not a problem! Join us after the race for the ARMSTRONG WEALTH PIECE JAM FESTIVAL from 12 noon - 5 pm. Come on down to the 100 Block of Dargan Street in Downtown Florence, and enjoy live music, food & beverage vendors, and a Kid Zone with inflatables, games and more. Homer, from the Red Wolves, will be leading the Kid’s Dash, too! Don’t forget to pack your tailgating chairs! Admission is free and open to the public.  The First 100 people receive a free swag bag with goodies from local merchants!
