AUTISM
1 in 48 children will be diagnosed with autism. It is more commonly found in boys than girls. People diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) often have difficulty with social, emotional, and communication skills. They might repeat certain behaviors, have rigid routines, and might not want change in their daily activities. Many people with ASD also have different ways of learning, paying attention, or reacting to things. Signs of ASD begin during early childhood and typically last throughout a person’s life. There is no cure for autism and the cause is still yet unknown.

Sponsorship Opportunities

There are a number of sponsorship opportunities for the Heroes for Autism 5k and Mile. Please email for more information.
