Annual Heroes for Autism 5k and Mile

The annual race is fun for everyone! There were vendors available to share information about the services they provide. An inflatable bounce house obstacle course provided entertainment for the kids. Our special guests, Gateway Superfriends, were superheros who posed for many pictures with our participants.

Sensory Boxes

We began donating sensory boxes during the pandemic to support families.  Many children have needed to have a distraction from being stuck indoors as parents struggled financially. We have been able to provide some entertainment and educational items as a result of generous donations.
