2nd Annual ‘Swing 4 Autism’

April 6, 2013 | 7:00 am - 5:00 pm
Maxwell Golf Course
1002 South 32nd, Abilene, TX 79605 United States

Additional Information

A growing number of children are being diagnosed with autism and autism spectrum disorder (ASD). The last figure I heard was that 1 out of 110 children is diagnosed with ASD. With more and more children being identified to have this neurological disorder, the need for additional research, education and other resources becomes more and more necessary. There are a lot of ways you can show support for autistic people and their families, including participating in the 2nd annual ‘Swing 4 Autism’ Golf Outing, coming April 6th at Maxwell Golf Course in Abilene.

‘Swing 4 Autism’ is an event to raise money for awareness and research for those affected by ASD, to provide education, research, resources and support to improve the quality of life for those with ASD. It is organized by the West Texas Autism Center and Abilene-based REACH for a Difference, and is sponsored in part by H-E-B.

Autism and ASD awareness are important to me, personally. I have a niece, Hayley, and a nephew, Matt, both with ASD. They are both sweet, kind and wonderful kids who have benefited from early diagnosis of their conditions. They’ve also been fortunate to have great parents who have taken advantage of terrific research, education and access to the proper therapy. Events like the ‘Swing 4 Autism’ helps fund all of these resources, as well as support groups and outreach programs. If you’re a golfer, you should get signed up. If you’re not, consider making a contribution to help make a difference in the lives of children with ASD and their families.
