The proceeds of this event help fund the "AuSome" Kids Day Program and Early Intervention Program which are designed to help children on the autism spectrum develop communication skills, self-help skills, play skills, group skills, academic skills and everyday functional behavior skills. The early intervention these children need is rarely covered by insurance or state programs. This fundraiser helps the NDAC provide services to children on the autism spectrum who may otherwise go without.

Registration can be completed at ndautismcenter.org. If you would like more information or want to volunteer on the day of the event, call 701-277-8844.

NDAC is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization whose mission is to help children affected by autism spectrum disorders to reach their full potential through excellence in care, instruction and support. One in every 110 children is diagnosed with autism which is the fastest-growing serious developmental disability in the U.S. More children will be diagnosed with autism this year than with AIDS, diabetes and cancer combined.
