Join us for our FIRST EVER Virtual Challenge! Create a flight team with your friends, family, coworkers, and pets or head out by yourself to help us reach our goal to Walk to the Moon! Team participants do NOT need to walk at the same time to count their distances together.
Our challenge will take place from September 1st-October 24th, 54 days in honor of the 1 in 54 incidence rate of Autism in the United States.
HOW TO PARTICIPATE:
Walk, Run, Bike, Swim or even Moonwalk as an individual or team and log your miles on the challenge website to be counted in the total.
INCREASE YOUR IMPACT:
We also have a $20,000 fundraising goal. As you may know, all money donated to the Autism Society of Greater New Orleans stays in the Greater New Orleans area to help all affected by autism. We are helping our community through our information and referral service, resource publications, Virtual Parent Support Group, Online Adults with Autism Social Group, Educational opportunities, yearly mini-grant program, and more. During this unprecedented time, ASGNO has remained dedicated to our mission, we need YOUR HELP to be able to continue to offer the vital assistance we provide to the community. Join the walk, create a fundraiser and help us continue to work to achieve our mission to improve the lives of ALL affected by autism. You can fundraise by soliciting direct donations either online, via mail to our address, or on Facebook, you also have the option to have donors pledge to donate based on how many miles you walk!
