The power of three
We are walking in the Autism 5K Fun Run/Walk to raise awareness for Autism. The Autism Resource Center has been a invaluable resource for us as a family. They have been an incredible resource for information and have given our children opportunities that they would not have had access to such as Camp Havvago, kayaking, water sports, sensory friendly activities to attend as a family, etc. They have been amazing along our journey with both our children that have Autism as well as providing sib shops for our daughter without autism. They help so many other families as well. When given this diagnosis, it is like being placed in a black box and told only certain doors are safe to open and get out. You are then told to navigate your way out with no further directions given. The center helps provide the further instructions needed to arrive safely. The center also provides families the ability to meet and make lasting friendships for these children that struggle socially. They don't want a label, they are just looking for acceptance.
HOW CAN YOU HELP?
You can help in many ways, monetary donation, donation of time, joining our team in the Fun Run to raise money and awareness or share our story. Every single thing helps. Help us get the word out, we are different but not less.
