As many as 1 in 54 children may be diagnosed with autism in the United States. You can make a difference in the lives of children with autism and their families by registering for the Virtual Run/Walk for Autism. Even though we cannot celebrate in person this year, you can make an even bigger impact by recruiting family members, friends, and co-workers from across the country to form a team and raise donations. Now more than ever, individuals with autism and their families need you!
Proceeds from the Virtual Run/Walk for Autism will fund local programs of the Autism Society of North Carolina, the leading statewide resource organization serving the people in NC across the spectrum throughout their lifespans. Participation in this event has helped ASNC to open a Social Recreation Centers in Eastern NC that offers summer day camps, afterschool care, and adult programs. Funding from the Run/Walk also enabled ASNC to bring other programs to the region, including LifeLong Interventions, ASNC’s comprehensive treatment program for children and adults, and workshops with ASNC clinical experts.
