About the Event
The Freddie Ford Family Foundation aims to raise money to support under-served families impacted by autism spectrum disorders. Autism spectrum disorder (ASD) is a developmental disability that can cause significant social, communication and behavioral challenges. 1 in 54 children are diagnosed on the autism spectrum. Autism is 4 times more common in boys than girls.
There is currently no cure for ASD. However, research shows that early intervention treatment services can improve a child’s development. Please help us make a difference in the lives of under-served families impacted by autism! Be a HERO for autism! Join us dressed as your favorite superhero!
Children 12 and under are free with a paid adult registration.
