IT'S TIME FOR THE AUTISM SOCIETY 

 

OF NEBRASKA PUZZLE WALKS!

         

The Autism Society of Nebraska is proud to announce three locations for the 2013 Autism Society Puzzle Walk!  
Join us in Grand Island, Omaha or North Platte.

Choose the city you would like to participate in - just click on the box and you will be "walked" through the registration process!

Can't attend the actual walk? No worries! Register as a Virtual Walker and join us in supporting the cause! All funds raised by the Autism Society stay in Nebraska where we can directly impact the lives of our local community!

Registration is easier than ever with our new registration site! Take a few moments and create your own personal fundraising page and help us spread the word!

 

OMAHA WALKERS/RUNNERS: If you are interested in a custom t-shirt for your family or team, here's some good information.  Patty, one of our awesome community members, did some research for us.  She found that the place with the best pricing is Podany Promotions on 60th and Maple in Benson.  The contact there is Kevin at 402 551-7505.  They can do one color/one-sided shirts starting at $7 for any size. They can design it for you or you can bring in a design. They need about 3 weeks turn-around time, so this is something
that families need to order asap.
 
 

DiGiorgio's, Shirt Shack and Tshirts plus are all over $11 per shirt but can do a faster turn-around.

Just wanted to pass this info along to you all!
 
(*please note: The Autism Society of Nebraska isn't endorsing any particular company; these are just a few options of places that are willing to work with our families.*)

    

ANNOUNCEMENT!

  drum roll, please.......... 

with 27% of the vote, the winner is....

Congratulations to Tyler and Katelyn, and thank you to all who submitted artwork!

A group of kids at Syracuse High School build an electric car each year (as do dozens of other Nebraska High School students). The kids at Syracuse decided to make their cars "Cause Cars". They chose Autism Society of Nebraska as their Cause Car this year! The cars will race on the UNL East Campus tractor test track. Come out and show support for autism and watch the kids race the ASN car!
