By participating in Airports For Autism (A4A) you are helping us raise awareness for Autism spectrum disorders (ASD) and similar diverse abilities, but also helping to raise funds for Rowell Family Empowerment of Northern California (RFENC). Increased awareness means increased sensitivity and compassion toward people with ASD. And for families with children with developmental disabilities like Autism, that means a lot. And increased funds for RFENC mean we are able to better serve those families.
Get ready for the 9th annual Airports for Autism.
We want to raise awareness about Autism and other disabilities that effect our communities. Join us for our annual fundraiser, Airports for Autism!
Rowell Family Empowerment and the City of Redding cordially invite you to participate as a sponsor of the 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 fun walk, raffle, and a community fair with vendor booths. Many participants stay until the end.
SLATE is a program of Rowell Family Empowerment that serves families and children living with autism spectrum disorders (ASDs) ages 3 through 17.
