ASGA events and fundraisers bring the Greater Akron autism community together for education, networking, and fun. Events range from the Annual Autism Summit Conference to sensory-friendly days with community partners to our largest annual fundraiser, the Autism 5k Run & Walk. Events and fundraisers offer families, caregivers, educators, other professionals, and individuals with autism a safe, comfortable place to be a part of the community and support ASGA's programs and services. Money raised for ASGA stays local to support those affected by autism in Medina, Portage, Stark, Summit and Wayne counties.

The Autism Society of Greater Akron (ASGA) is hosting its eleventh annual signature fundraiser to support individuals and families living with autism in our community! We’ll kick-off on April 24 with the Step Into Autism 54 Day Challenge, and end on June 19 at Lock 3 with a Resource Fair and Family Fun Day (social distance style).

This year’s event is a new and exciting Challenge that celebrates 1:54, the estimated number of children living with autism, and blends healthy fitness with our traditional family day and resource fair.

The Challenge is walking, running or cycling 1.54 miles a day for 54 days, or choose a higher challenge level with options for more miles! The Challenge can be done anywhere, anytime!

On June 19, we’re looking forward to seeing everyone again at the 1:54 Day Challenge Family Fun Day, where you can pick up local resources to support your autism journey, and join in fun activities for the kids. We’ll also be giving out prizes to the Challenge winners!
