Stomp-the-Swamp-2013Stomp the Swamp for Autism is a fitness event held annually at Ben Hill Griffin Stadium. This year, the Fifth Annual Stomp the Swamp for Autism, hosted by UF’s First Lady Chris Machen, will be held on Saturday, February, 9, 2013 at 10 am. The event will feature LIVE entertainment from KISS 105.3 and various UF organizations, as well as free breakfast, the chance to win many raffle and race prizes including gym memberships, Best Buy gift cards and more, and an awesome t-shirt to the first 200 people to register.

Participants will either run or walk the stadium inner loop, or run stadiums. All kids 12 and under participate for free in a specialized obstacle course just for them. It’s great fun for all fitness levels and abilities!

You can register as an individual, or as a “Team” of friends, or with your student organization. All teams will be recognized for their support of those with autism in our community, and the largest team wins a cash prize!

Autism is the fastest growing developmental disability in the United States, and Stomp the Swamp for Autism supports the UF Center for Autism and Related Disabilities, and their important work in our community.

On February 9, we hope you will join us as you STOMP the SWAMP for AUTISM! Enjoy live entertainment, win prizes and get in shape for spring break, all while supporting this wonderful cause.
