Please Support the Tampa Interbay Rotary Annual Cycling for Autism Fundraiser

The Interbay Rotary Club is hosting the 7th Annual Cycling For Autism on Saturday March 19, 2016 at the Pasco Rotary Pavillon at Concourse Nature Park in Spring Hill.

Why Autism?

Recently, Interbay Rotary club made the decision to support autism with the focus on children. Autism Spectrum Disorder is currently being diagnosed at the rate of 1/68 children today. We do not know what causes autism and no current cure exists. It costs a family between 3-5 million dollars over their child’s lifespan. Yet, less than 5% of NIH research dollars goes toward autism…far less than the 44% that goes to childhood cancer or the 20% that funds childhood diabetes even though the prevalence of autism is far greater.

The monies raised will be donated to two programs that help people touched by autism spectrum disorder today, when families most need it. The Center for Autism and Related Disabilities and the Applied Behavior Analysis Program at the University of South Florida will be the recipients of the donations to continue their work in delivering education, services and supports to individuals and their families.

In the last 6 years nearly $165,000 has been raised to support children in our community who have an autism spectrum disorder.
