Greensboro, NC (PRWEB) October 02, 2013
The Autism Society of North Carolina raised more than $40,000 on Saturday, Sept. 28, as more than 400 people participated in the 5th annual Greensboro Run/Walk for Autism on the UNC-Greensboro campus.
Proceeds from the event will support individuals on the autism spectrum and their families throughout the Triad community. All money raised by the Autism Society of North Carolina stays in North Carolina, providing support and promoting opportunities for the over 60,000 people in our state affected by Autism Spectrum Disorder.
The Greensboro Run/Walk for Autism continued to exceed fundraising totals from 2012 as more than 43 teams participated. In addition to the traditional competitive and noncompetitive 5K events, this year marked the first 1K Family Fun Walk, which made it possible for more families to be a part of the celebration.
