Active For Autism

Join us on Sunday, October 23rd, 2022 and get Active for Autism!

Autism Society, Newfoundland & Labrador (ASNL) is excited to invite the province to participate in Active for Autism on Sunday, October 23 or at a time that is best suited to your community/schedule. We are also excited to announce that Pipers is once again our Presenting Partner and extend our thanks for their continued support. We are delighted with how much this event has grown over the years, the support our community shows is outstanding and we thank you!
Active for Autism is one of our most popular events and encourages families and friends to get together, get active, and raise awareness and funds for ASNL! Active for Autism occurs in close to a dozen locations across the province annually! Participants can choose to walk at an organized event in their community (in-person) or walk within their bubble at a time and location of their convenience (virtual).

Registration is $25 per person and can be done online or at one of our offices in advance by noon on Friday, October 21.

Register yourself now to start fundraising online; you can share your own personalised fundraising page on Facebook, Twitter, your website, or by email!
