|Details||AmaXIng Challenge: Step It Up is a 5K walk/run hosted by the East Carolina University Alpha Xi Delta chapter to autism awareness and funds in support of Autism Speaks, the nation’s leading autism advocacy organization and Alpha Xi Delta’s national philanthropy partner.
Autism is the fastest growing developmental disorder, affecting 1 in 88 children born today. Despite the high prevalence and growing health care costs associated with caring for a child with autism, autism research receives less than 5% of the research funding of other, less prevalent, childhood diseases. The AmaXIng Challenge: Step It Up will not only raise autism awareness but funding for crucial autism.
