Nothing brings the staff and volunteers of AIM (Autism Involves Me) greater joy than providing resources and awareness to the local autism community. Since 2002, the nonprofit organization has worked with families, schools, medical providers, congress and senate members to serve those touched by autism.
The rise in the number of children identified with autism represents the importance of autism awareness nationally and locally. To boost autism awareness and knowledge, AIM hosts a number of grant programs and local events throughout the year, such as the upcoming AIM Weekend on May 13 & 14.
AIM Weekend is a community event featuring a Golf Tournament and Walk to raise funds allowing AIM to serve families impacted by autism. The Golf Tournament, held on May 13 at Big Sugar Golf Club, includes lunch, craft beer and more. The 7th annual Walk will take place at NWA Community College on May 14 and will include family-friendly activities such as a family fun walk, kids zone, resource fair, silent auction, local food trucks and much more. You can get involved in the weekend’s festivities here.
