Rowell Family Empowerment and the City of Redding cordially invite you to participate as a sponsor of the 4th Annual Airports for Autism. This event is championed and supported by the City of Redding and has been organized as a fundraiser for Rowell Family Empowerment, a local non-profit that works with families and children who have diverse abilities such as autism.
Airports For Autism is a big event in the local community and it continues to grow each year. The marquee portion of the event is a 5K race, which takes place on the runway and concourse of Benton Airpark in Redding. Airports For Autism also features a 2 mile fun walk, kids dash, raffle, silent auction and a community fair with vendor booths. Many participants stay until the end.
Your sponsorship helps to defray the cost of organizing and hosting the event, but more importantly it helps to improve outcomes for children with diverse abilities while raising awareness of autism spectrum disorders (ASD). Funds received from sponsorships go directly to Rowell Family Empowerment (RFENC) which is dedicated to a mission of empowering people with diverse abilities, and their families, to successfully navigate the systems that serve them and to empower them to self-advocate, by providing support, information and training. This is something that is absolutely vital in the North State.
There are various levels of sponsorship. Size and placement of names/logos on t-shirts, banners and the race webpage are based on sponsorship level.
