Raleigh, NC (PRWEB) August 08, 2014
The Autism Society of North Carolina is gearing up for its three biggest fundraisers of the year to provide support for families affected by autism in the Triangle, Triad, and Western North Carolina.
In North Carolina, 1 in 58 children will be diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). Proceeds from the Run/Walk for Autism events stay in North Carolina, funding local programs of the Autism Society of North Carolina (ASNC). ASNC is the leading statewide resource organization providing support for families and promoting opportunities for the over 60,000 people in the state affected by ASD.
Last year, more than 4,800 people participated in the three fall Run/Walk for Autism events, raising more than $421,000 for North Carolina residents affected by autism.
The events also give families a chance to celebrate autism awareness and acceptance with their communities during a day of fun with amusements for children, music, and refreshments. Vendor space at each event showcases local businesses, service providers, support resources, and sponsors.
