About ZFA


Zipping for Autism was created by a passionate parent, teacher, and local business owner who saw both a need for, and the great value of, early diagnosis and intervention for families she worked with. This event is a grass-roots effort by families, local businesses, and national supporters who realize it is up to the community to step up and make a difference for children and families in the community. ZFA was born in western NC, all funds remain in our region, and you will benefit from the experience of being involved in a unique, local, and fun event. 


100% of the money raised from individual and team donations from Zipping for Autism support the programs and services of the Autism Society of North Carolina in western NC, with a particular focus on advocacy, respite, and diagnostic services.
