Everyone knows someone with autism… maybe your brother, sister, cousin, friend at school, next door neighbor, or your best buddy. The Autism Society of North Carolina (ASNC) is committed to helping each person with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) by providing support and promoting opportunities. Join others as we run or walk together to make a difference in life of someone with ASD. The Autism Society of North Carolina currently supports over 200 families in WNC, and there are more individuals with autism and their families seeking our help every day. We can help. You can help!

Mark your calendar and plan to join us at the 5th Annual WNC Run/Walk for Autism. We have something for everyone! You can run the Diamond Brand Outdoor 5K or participate in the recreational one mile walk. Sign up today as a participant and even better, get your friends and family together to form a team.
