Relay4Autism Fort Wayne

Join us for the 6th annual Relay4Autism Fort Wayne! Plus, we are bringing back the walk with a twist!

Relay4Autism Fort Wayne will have an even larger Resource Fair with vendors ready to talk with you about their local autism services and resources. While learning about autism, individuals and families affected by autism can have fun with tons of entertainment: carnival games, balloon artist, face painters, music, sports area, motorized train, model trains, craft area, food trucks, sensory area, sensory calming area, emergency vehicles, and lots more! Something for everyone!

During the event, we are going to have walkers continuously walking around a designated walk route at the fairgrounds throughout the whole event to celebrate those affected by autism in the Northeast Indiana community! Create your Teams NOW to raise money to support those affected by autism!

  • Create a Facebook Fundraiser for your team to raise up to $1,000 for those affected by autism in Northeast Indiana. **Make sure the title of the Facebook fundraiser indicates it’s for “Relay4Autism Fort Wayne” and the end date for the fundraiser is September 8, 2019.**
  • Download Pledge Form; if you do not want to create an online fundraiser. With the Pledge form, you can ask friends, family, co-workers, therapists, church members, etc to sponsor you to walk during the relay! You will collect the contributions either cash or check. Please make checks out to “Autism Society of Indiana” and in the memo line put “Relay4Autism Fort Wayne” so we can get accurate information on how much was raised for the Northeast Indiana Autism Community!

During the Relay:

  • Teams will be able to set up Team Tents in a designated area to cheer on walkers, meet and gather to celebrate for the whole afternoon! (Teams provide own canopy tents)
  • Will have special “walkers” to lead laps with banners around the walk route.
  • If you want to just walk the route you do not have to have a team or raise money, it is open to everyone who wants to walk at any time and as many laps you want.

Event t-shirts can be purchased the day of the event

$12 for each t-shirt. First come, first serve.
