Run for Autism! Helps New Children's Autism Program in Montgomery


By Alabama News Network

Hundreds of people in Montgomery laced up their running shoes to give back and help children with autism in our community.

Early this morning, the Center for Child and Adolescent Development held its second annual 5-K Run and One Mile Fun Run/Walk For Autism on Saturday.

The races started at 7:00 AM, and between 150 to 200 runners raced for Autism.

All funds raised in the race will go to help a new program to help kids diagnosed with autism in the Montgomery area.

Teresa Green, Director for the CCAD, said she wants to spread awareness in Montgomery of the center's work.

"We provide services for children who might be developmentally delayed, or children whose parents  might just have concerns that they have a learning disability."

If you weren't able to be at the run, but still want to help children with autism in Montgomery, call the Center for Child and Adolescent Development, at (334) 262-5744, extension 203.
