Approximately 3,156 of those individuals are considered to be Priority Level 1 or in urgent need of a waiver.
Thank you to all who joined the ASCV for another successful 5K Run/Walk for Autism! Over 1200 runners/walkers and 75 teams participated in this year’s 5K on Saturday morning, May 26th. The participants spent time visiting with event sponsors, many of whom provided helpful information on community resources for those on the spectrum. Families also enjoyed Chick-fil-a, Kona Ice and Raise Coffee, Inc. refreshments, while the kids enjoyed Capital One’s balloon artist and the ASCV Kid Zone with bubbles and inflatables. This year’s newest addition, the SunTrust Photo Booth was a big hit with young and old alike, with the photos being posted to Facebook, for all to share with family and friends. #ASCV5K
