Welcome to my fundraising page for the 11th annual One Walk, Big Strides for Autism. Please join me in registering for the walk or making a donation to the Autism Society of South Central Wisconsin. (ASC) This is their largest fundraiser of the year and it helps fund their numerous efforts supporting the autism spectrum community.
Those on the autism spectrum and their families have been supported by this Autism Society of America affiliate in South Central Wisconsin since 1969. A wonderful organization, it is always working to address areas of need and expanding support for the autism communities in ten Southern Wisconsin Counties: Columbia, Crawford, Dane, Grant, Green, Iowa, Lafayette, Richland, Rock and Sauk.
The ASC is run largely by volunteers, with only two part-time paid staff members, doing an incredible amount of work to provide support for those on the autism spectrum and their families. This includes support and social groups for all family members, fun family events, educational outreach and public policy advocacy.
As a visionary group, they recognize that each person on the autism spectrum has special attributes and ways to contribute. That’s why they are committed to efforts that grow societal inclusion to earn respect for all individuals on the spectrum from diagnosis through the lifespan.
