Join us for the 15th annual WNC Run/Walk for Autism!
This year, the event will be virtual. During the week of Oct. 3-10, participants are invited to complete a 5K or 1-mile race and upload their times to our race site. You will have the opportunity to pick up your T-shirt in person or have it mailed for a small fee.
On Saturday, Oct. 10, at 9 a.m., we will live stream to recognize our runners, team award winners, donors, and sponsors. 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 WNC Run/Walk for Autism. Even though we cannot celebrate in person this year, you can make an even bigger impact by recruiting family members, friends, and co-workers to form a team and raise donations. Now more than ever, individuals with autism and their families need you!
Proceeds from the WNC Run/Walk for Autism will fund local programs of the Autism Society of North Carolina (ASNC), 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 ASD. You can help!
