Triangle Run/Walk for Autism Funds Autism Programs Statewide

October 2012trianglerelease2012forweb

On Saturday, October 13th, the Autism Society of North Carolina (ASNC) will hold its 14th annual Triangle Run/Walk for Autism. Runners and walkers of all ages participate in this event, which is held in Moore Square in downtown Raleigh from 9:00 am to 12:00 noon.

The Triangle Run/Walk for Autism is part of the Second Empire Grand Prix Series and is USATF certified. It includes a 5K race, a 5K non-competitive run, a recreational 1-mile run/walk, and the Carolina Hurricane's Kids' Dash. There will also be live music, a children's play area, vendors, snacks, and awards.

Proceeds from this event benefit the Autism Society of North Carolina, which provides support and promotes opportunities for over 60,000 North Carolinians with autism and their families. ASNC offers advocacy, education and training, and a variety of direct services, including home and community support, personal care services, and supported employment.

In 2011, the Triangle Run/Walk for Autism hosted over 3,000 participants and raised over $240,000 to support families affected by autism in our state. A record-breaking number of over 200 race teams raised money in honor of a loved one with autism, many with customized t-shirts, banners, and costumes.

"The Triangle Run/Walk for Autism is our largest annual fundraiser," says Kristy White, Director of Development for the Autism Society of North Carolina. "Many of our programs and services rely directly on the funds raised by event participants and supporters."

This year's goals are to raise $300,000 and have over 225 teams.

Online registration is now closed, but individuals can register in person at Capital Run/Walk in Cameron Village on Thursday, October 11, from noon-5:00 pm or on Friday, October 12, from 4:00- 7:00 pm. Participants also have the option of registering before the race on the day of the event.

Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) is a lifelong developmental disability that typically appears during the first three years of life. Recent studies estimate that up to 1 of every 70 children born in North Carolina will be affected by ASD.

For over forty years, the Autism Society of North Carolina has worked to address areas of need and expand services for the autism community in North Carolina. ASNC works to directly improve the lives of individuals affected by autism, by providing advocacy, education, and services.
