Get moving for Camp Spectrum! Virtual Run/Walk/Ride Fundraiser for our Summer Day Camp for Children and Youth with Autism in the Annapolis Valley, NS!

~~Get moving for Camp Spectrum! Virtual Run/Walk/Ride Fundraiser for our Summer Day Camp for Children and Youth with Autism in the Annapolis Valley, NS!

 This summer will be the ninth year for Camp Spectrum. In 2017 our specialized program took place in 5 different locations throughout the Annapolis Valley and was attended by 37 campers with autism between the ages of 3 and 20. Even so we still had a wait list. We would love to provide the camping experience to more families but in order to do so we need to hire additional counselors as each of our campers is accompanied by his or her own 1 to 1 support during every one-week session. If we can raise approximately $3,500 to cover the salary of one counselor this will mean SEVEN MORE CHILDREN will be able to attend Camp Spectrum in 2018.

 Please join us for our Virtual Run/Walk/Ride for Camp Spectrum. Register between March 6th. and March 31st., for the bargain price of $25.00, and we'll send you a hand-crafted, one-of-a-kind medal. (Medals will be ready for pick-up or delivery/mail, beginning March 20th.) Then, during the month of April, which is Autism Awareness Month, run, walk, ride a bike, push a stroller or walk the dog for Camp Spectrum. When, where and how far you go is entirely up to you. Once you're done, strap on your medal and take a photo to share with us so that we can share it, too, and show our future campers what wonderful support they've received.

 To register, contact us at annapolisvalley@autismns.ca or 902-242-2019. We're happy to accept cheques and e-transfers. Please SHARE with friends and family regardless of where they live. They can participate in this fundraiser NO MATTER WHERE IN THE WORLD THEY ARE!

 100% of the proceeds from this event will go towards funding the 2018 edition of Camp Spectrum. Help us make our dream of more campers at our camp a reality! Thank-you
