April is Autism Awareness Month in Reno and around the country! For area family members who have been touched by autism it may help to know that the Reno community has many events planned to help raise money and awareness for this epidemic.
I certainly hope it will help!
For those who have not been effected are encouraged to go out and participate in and to learn more on how autism effects so many in your community.
What a great time to reach out to those families who are struggling with autism and let them know you care.
Here are a few of the scheduled Autism Awareness events scheduled for the Reno / Sparks Nevada areas this month (APRIL 2011):
KIDS & HORSES ~ Kids & Horses will honor autism awareness with a trail ride and poker run, "Ride the Trail in Their Spurs," from 9 a.m.-2 p.m., April 23 at the Double W Ranch, where Kids & Horses is located in Minden.
The goal is to create awareness about autism, therapeutic riding and help fund scholarships for students in need.
UCAN ~ The University Center for Autism and Neurodevelopment (UCAN) and The Lili Claire Foundation, Inc.will be hosting the 2011 Spring Forward for Autism 5k Walk/Run and 1 Mile Fun Run at the Mackay Stadium on April 17.
