|Autism is a developmental disorder that affects approximately 1 in every 100 children. There is no cure. Despite it's prevalence autism receives far less federal funding for research and treatment than other less prevalent diseases. |
Train 4 Autism is a foundation dedicated to bringing together a community of athletes, physically-active, and socially conscious people who are committed to raising awareness and funds for research and treatment for those living with autism and their families. Fundraising and volunteer opportunities for individual athletes, teams and entire families include marathons, half-marathons, 10-Ks, 5-Ks, walks, triathlons, swimming and/or cycling events.
Train 4 Autism is unique in that we empower participants to direct the majority of the funds they raise to the autism program(s) and/or organization(s) of their choice.
Today, there are many treatment centers and research programs all doing vital work, and all carrying different yet important messages and missions. Train 4 Autism provides the infrastructure, technology and support for athletes, parents, teachers, caregivers, and others to raise funds and contribute to the programs about which they are most passionate.
Train 4 Autism is a nonprofit, 501 (c) (3) organization founded by parents and families of children touched by Autism.
