      Text Box: **Breaking Upstate Strides For Autism News**
Heritage Park has agreed to offer special train ride prices to Strides for Autism participants!  The train is a miniature replica steam engine, and is comfortable for all.  Normally the rate is $2 per person, per ride.  But for those attending Strides for Autism, an all-day, all-you-can-ride pass will be available for just $3!  

It’s time to register for

      Strides for Autism!

       

      The first two South Carolina Autism Society Strides for Autism events of the year are fast approaching!  It is time to start your teams, register, and obtain sponsorships!  As a reminder, the first two walks are as follows:

       

                  Saturday, April 17, 2010 – Upstate Strides for Autism at Heritage Park in Simpsonville

                  Saturday, May 15, 2010 – Midlands Strides for Autism at Finaly Park in Columbia

       

      The Strides for Autism website is located at http://www.scautism.org/strides/.  There are a few options you may want to consider.

       

      Start A Team:

      Create a team to recognize someone with autism.  Whether you are an individual with autism, family member, provider, friend, or a member of the community who wants to get involved, this is the most popular option.  Once your team is created, you can contact your friends, family, coworkers, etc. to sponsor your team for the walk(s). 

      *Note – If you created a team in the past, you will likely need to create a new one this year. 

       

      Join A Team:

      This is where you can sponsor another team that is participating in Strides for Autism.  A great way to show your financial support, especially if you cannot make it out to the walks.  This is also where those who want to support your team can go online and donate.

       

      Registration:

                  If you want to come to a Strides for Autism event, but do not want to Start or Join a Team, this is the place for you. 

       

      Attached are two PDF files that provide step-by-step instructions for starting a team and joining a team.  If you have any additional questions, please feel free to contact me.

       

      Best of luck to all teams and individuals as we take Strides for Autism!  Remember, together we can solve the puzzle!

          Announcing the first two South Carolina Autism Society Strides for Autism events of the year!!  It is time to start your teams, register, and obtain sponsorships!  Please join us….

           

                      Saturday, April 14, 2012 – Upstate Strides for Autism at Heritage Park in Simpsonville

                      Saturday, May 19, 2012 – Midlands Strides for Autism at Finaly Park in Columbia

           

          Onsite registration at both events begins at 8:00 am, with the fun-walk beginning at 9 am.  Note that this is a “walk-what-you-can” event.  In addition to the walk, we will have a Resource Fair, family-fun activities, and music!

           

          About Strides for Autism:

           

          Strides for Autism is SCAS’s signature fund-raising and awareness walk.  The Upstate and Midlands events are the first two of four statewide walks that take place each year.  The walks are among various activities that benefit the organization and the families it serves.

           

          SCAS is the only statewide agency advocating for children and adults with autism spectrum disorders and their families, while also providing assistance and resources.  SCAS promotes, educates and raises awareness that one in every 110 births in the U.S. is a child with autism, and provides support for South Carolina-based research and development.  Most importantly, SCAS works to ensure that the 42,000 individuals with an autism spectrum disorder (ASD) living in South Carolina have opportunities to achieve a quality of life comparable to their peers.

           

          Monies raised for South Carolina Autism Society stay in South Carolina and go towards family supports, education, advocacy, and South Carolina-based research. 

           

          Registration and other information for Strides for Autism, along with information about autism and SCAS, is available at the event Web site,

           

          https://scautism.org/strides/

           

          Website Changes:

           

          We’ve made a few changes to the Strides for Autism website.  Here are a few online options you may want to consider.

           

          My Account:

          This is where you can setup or modify your user account.  Note that you will now be asked to indicate which walk(s) you want to participate in, or if you want to Stride in Spirit.  This will insure that even those who want to come out and participate in person, but who are not able to donate, are able to be counted.

           

          Start A Team:

          Create a team to recognize someone with autism.  Whether you are an individual with autism, family member, provider, friend, or a member of the community who wants to get involved, this is a popular option.  Once your team is created, you can contact your friends, family, coworkers, etc. to sponsor your team for the walk(s). 

          *Note – If you created a team in the past, you will need to create a new one this year.
