Heartspring's CAREfest is a fundraising festival packed with fun and events for everyone.

Set the pace at one of our PedalFest bike rides or the 5K Run. Walk for children and families impacted by autism in the Autism CARE Walk. Enjoy food, music, and activities for the whole family.

Heartspring lifts up children with a variety of intellectual, developmental, physical, and behavioral needs through therapeutic and educational services. Funds from CAREfest help all departments at Heartspring succeed, including the Heartspring Therapeutic School, Pediatric Services, and Autism Services.
