AUTISM SPEAKS

It’s time to listen

BADASS Dash™ benefits Autism Speaks, an organization dedicated to funding global biomedical research into the causes, prevention, treatments, and cure for autism; to raising public awareness about autism and its effects on individuals, families, and society; and to bringing hope to all who deal with the hardships of this disorder. It is Autism Speaks firm belief that, working together, we will find the missing pieces of the puzzle. We are committed to raising the funds necessary to support these goals. The cause is bigger than the obstacles.

At Autism Speaks our goal is to change the future for all who struggle with autism spectrum disorders.

Team Up Program

Team Up with Autism Speaks provides a fundraising opportunity for endurance based activities.  We partner with events to secure hard to get entries so individuals will still have the chance to race, but for our team.  Our teams require fundraising in exchange for access to the entry and to team benefits.  If individuals have their own entry they can still fundraise for Autism Speaks and race in our name to raise awareness and funds.

Every Dollar Raised

The money raised from BADASS Dash™ and all Team Up events are used by Autism Speaks to provide grants to several programs such as fund scientific research, help create a useful tool kit for service providers such as the 100 days kit for families or our first responders training kit, and fund family service grants to providers so they can develop and run a program helping those on the spectrum learn to socialize or even learn to run.
