Autism Services and Resources Connecticut (ASRC), the first exclusive Connecticut autism advocacy organization for individuals and families, will hold the 24th Annual Walk and Festival for Autism Sunday, May 23 at the North Haven Fairgrounds.
The event will include a short walk with three staggered start times, food trucks, a classic car show, raffle and other socially-distanced entertainment.
Founded in 1997, ASRC provides services, support and resources to families and individuals living with autism, as well as to the educators, medical and therapeutic professionals and community providers who work with them. The organization offers opportunities for parent networking, activities, social groups, training, advocacy and events for all ages. Also, ASRC responds to hundreds of families who are new to the diagnosis or who need guidance navigating transition and adult issues. One hundred percent of the funds raised by the organization stay in Connecticut.
The ASRC Walk for Autism was the first walk benefiting individuals living with autism and their families in the state. For more information, visit ct-asrc.org.
