To ensure the safety of you and your loved ones, the Autism Society of North Carolina is canceling this event. Instead of the walk, we will host a family celebration at a date to be determined. We hope to see you there!
We hope, however, that you will join us in still celebrating your loved ones with autism. 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 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.
Thank you for your support!
As many as 1 in 57 children may be diagnosed with autism in North Carolina. You can make a difference in the lives of children with autism and their families by registering for the Surry County Walk for Autism. Registration for the walk without a shirt is $20, and registration with an event T-shirt is $15 ($20 for 2XL or 3XL). You can make an even bigger impact by recruiting family members, friends, and co-workers to form a team and raise donations. If your team sells at least 20 T-shirts by April 3, the team name can be added to the shirt — now is the time to start!
Proceeds from the Surry County 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. 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 Autism Spectrum Disorder. You can help!
The Surry County Walk for Autism will have something for everyone! Join us for the awareness walk or Zumba. The family-friendly event will also offer vendor space where local support resources are showcased. Come be a part of our community for this fun day!
