Autism affects many of us, our friends, and family, and even more so in New Jersey. New Jersey has the highest rates of Autism in the country. In the US, the rate of autism is 1 in 68 children, while in New Jersey we experience a staggering 1 in 45 rate.
The funds raised by participants in Go The Distance for Autism provide direct support for, and change the lives of, individuals with autism and their families right here in The Garden State.
Go the Distance for Autism is a unique event that bands five organizations together to raise funds for a common mission - to provide educational and treatment programs for children and adults with autism.
Alpine Learning Group, The EPIC School, Garden Academy, and REED Academy are working together to change the future for those who struggle with autism, spread much needed awareness, and directly impact the lives of children and their families living with autism every day.
All five programs are located in Northern NJ and all monies raised from the Go the Distance for Autism Ride support educational and treatment programs for children and adults with autism.
Over the past six years, the Go the Distance for Autism Ride has raised over $5,500,000 from thousands of participants and donors. Help us continue our good work!
