What could be better than a charity run in Asheville, NC? Please join me in the 2012 WNC Run/Walk for Autism on Saturday, September 29th. It’ll be a blast! There are fun options for everyone, with a 5K competitive and non-competitive run, a 1K recreational run/walk, and a Kids’ Dash. Not to mention the many booths you can visit! The event will be held at UNC Asheville. All proceeds go to support programs and services of the Autism Society of North Carolina.

Approximately 1 in 88 children have been identified as having an Autism Spectrum Disorder. Those with an ASD average $4,110 – $6,200 in additional medical expenses. Not including medical costs, interventions for children with an ASD cost an average of $40,000 – $60,000 per year.
Autism Society of North Carolina supports community services, vocational rehabilitation programming, supported living homes, and advocacy programs. I hope you will join the Autism Consulting and Training, Inc. team with me and participate in the WNC Run/Walk for Autism event. If you cannot make it, you can still show your support by sponsoring the team with an online donation. Friends, this is a fantastic opportunity to join and help your community!
So, please, join me!
