The Story

Since 1984, Autism Services Incorporated has provided a Summer Program for persons with Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD). It offers a program of daily support in the months of July and August to individuals between 6 to 21 years who have a psychiatric diagnosis of autism. A director oversees the program that employs a staff of supervisors and support workers. Post secondary students are recruited and trained to work in this highly specialized program. As a show of appreciation to Bruce Awad, the creator of the program, the Board of Directors of ASI officially named the program "The Bruce Awad Summer Program" on June 14, 2010.

This is a program that is very near and dear to my heart, as I was a support worker for three summers. This was more than a job for me and completely had an impact on the course of my life. I was convinced by my wonderful girlfriend to run the Detroit Free Press Half-Marathon and thought that I could use that as a platform to raise money for such a great cause! If you would like to support us as we train for the upcoming race, please donate! As this is more than enough fuel to keep us going through our gruelling runs! The race is on October 15th, 2017, but we want to keep the fundraiser live for the whole month of October as it is Autism Awareness Month!
