ABOUT

According to the Centers for Disease Control, 1 in 54 children in the U.S. is diagnosed with ASD, affecting thousands of families. To increase awareness about the number of children diagnosed with ASD, we’ve structured Essence Fitness Autism Awareness Virtual Run/Walk to raise money for The Color of Autism Foundation. 

Raising a child on the autism spectrum can be an exhausting and lonely roller coaster ride. Many families cannot afford to pay for the services their autistic child needs. Funds raised will benefit.

The Executive Director and Founder of our chosen Foundation, Camille Proctor, emphasized how important education is. Many parents and loved ones of those diagnosed with ASD are not aware of what resources and services are available or how to obtain them.

 

Together, let’s make a difference.
