2021 Triad Run/Walk for Autism

A Mission for Maddox

As most of you know, my son, Maddox was diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder in 2019. Maddox loves holding hands and walking in the sunshine, Motown music, Mickey Mouse, and lots of hugs. Maddox is one of the greatest gifts we've ever received from heaven above.

In the short time since our diagnosis - I have learned so much about Autism and what it means to live in society with Autism. This journey has made me realize how much we need our community to help.

I hope you will join us in participating in this awesome fundraiser. Proceeds from the Triad Run/Walk for Autism will fund local programs of the Autism Society of North Carolina (ASNC), the leading statewide resource organization serving people in NC across the spectrum throughout their lifespans. 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!

Autism is just a part of who Maddox is. It doesn't define him. Sometimes it's hard - like really hard. Other times, it's so beautiful that I can hardly catch my breath.

Come meet Maddox and support the cause.
