To ensure the safety of you and your loved ones, the Autism Society of North Carolina is canceling the in-person Run/Walk for Autism.
We hope that you will still register to participate virtually and celebrate your loved ones with autism. On the previously scheduled date of the event, we invite you to take a walk around your block with your family (while maintaining social distancing). Wear your team T-shirts, carry your signs! Hold a virtual event through Facebook Live or video calling. Together, we can still celebrate and build acceptance in our communities.
We also ask that you continue to encourage donations to your Run/Walk teams; this event website will continue to accept donations. Now more than ever, the Autism Society of North Carolina needs funding to continue improving lives, supporting families, and educating communities.
Proceeds from the Coastal NC Run/Walk for Autism will fund local programs of the Autism Society of North Carolina, the leading statewide resource organization serving the over 65,000 people in NC across the spectrum throughout their lifespans. Participation in this event has helped ASNC to open a Social Recreation Center in Wilmington 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.
Everyone knows someone affected by autism — maybe your brother, cousin, friend at school, neighbor, or co-worker. Join others to make a difference in the life of someone you care about with ASD. You can help!
