Join us for our 1st annual Relay4Autism Highland! Relay4Autism Highland will have an Autism 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 entertainments: carnival games, balloon artist, face painters, music, sensory 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 around the park throughout the whole event to celebrate those affected by autism in the Northwestern 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 Northwestern Indiana. **Make sure the title of the Facebook fundraiser indicates it’s for “Highland Relay4Autism” and the end date for the fundraiser is August 3, 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 Highland” so we can get accurate information on how much was raised for the Northwestern 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 event! (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.
If you are wanting an event t-shirt it will be $10 for each t-shirt to buy the day of the event. First come, first served.
We are looking for volunteers to help at Relay4Autism Highland with set up, work the event, and tear down! ASI volunteers are the foundation of a successful event! Each ASI volunteer will get a free event t-shirt!
