Autism Awareness events continue in May with the Crunch Fitness 5K to benefit Anderson (May 5) and Anderson Family Partners 5K (May 20).
“According to the Centers for Disease Control, 1 in 68 are diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder. Community events like the ones planned throughout the coming month not only help raise awareness about the neurological disorder, but also help us build a supportive community around those impacted,” said Eliza Bozenski, Director, Anderson Foundation for Autism.
“As a parent of a child who lives at Anderson Center for Autism full-time, I am in awe of the number of community events organized each year to help people better understand what families like ours experience and how they can help. It is heartwarming to see the outpouring of support for Anderson and the cause; there are no words to express what it means to me,” said Andrea Lambe of Long Island.
“We are deeply grateful to the many businesses and organizations who find ways to draw attention to our cause, and feel that these events really speak to the power of community partnerships. The more people understand what Autism is and how to help those diagnosed, the greater our chances will be at making our mission of optimizing their quality of life a reality,” added Patrick Paul, CEO/Executive Director of Anderson Center for Autism.
Founded in 1924, Anderson Center for Autism offers educational, vocational, and residential programs and services to staff and residents.
