This year, our spring Run/Walks will be virtual. During the week of April 17-24, participants are invited to complete a 5K race or 1-mile run/walk and fundraise to help support their local programs and services.

As many as 1 in 54 children may be diagnosed with autism in the United States. You can make a difference in the lives of children with autism and their families by registering for the Virtual 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 from across the country to form a team and raise donations. Now more than ever, individuals with autism and their families need you!

You could win a Garmin: Register for the Virtual Run/Walk AND donate/raise $100 by March 31, and you’ll be entered to win your choice of a Garmin vivoactive 4 or 4S!

Proceeds from the Virtual Run/Walk for Autism will fund local programs of the Autism Society of North Carolina, the leading statewide resource organization serving the people in NC across the spectrum throughout their lifespans. Participation in this event has helped ASNC to open Social Recreation Centers in Eastern NC 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!
