Welcome to Triad Run/Walk for Autism 2020 "Team Diego"
Autism is a journey I never planned for, but I sure do love my tour guide. On October 27, 2009, my world was turned upside down. My first born, Diego, was born at 23 weeks gestation and weighed a pound and half. He was not expected to ever leave the hospital. However, miracles can happen and he is living proof. Today, he is my fun loving swimmer, soon to be 11 year old. He has been diagnoised on the spectrum and has trouble with communication everyday. I am his voice, he is my heart. Remote Learning has been especially difficult for him and many other children with special needs. I greatly appreciate my family and his teachers for all their support. Together, I think we could accomplish more.
Please join us in raising funds for children with Autism in our community. They need services now more than ever. Thank you for supporting the Triad Run/Walk for Autism. Your contribution is greatly appreciated.
The Autism Society of North Carolina is the leading statewide resource organization serving people across the autism spectrum throughout their lifespans.
We understand the challenges of the autism community because we work with individuals on the autism spectrum and their families every day. We offer advocacy, training and education, and direct care that helps individuals with autism to, increase their social and communication skills, develop independent-living skills, succeed in school or on the job, participate in community activities, and advocate for themselves.
We have a statewide network of resources, connecting individuals with autism and their families to life-changing programs and supports unavailable anywhere else.
