MILWAUKEE, WI (August 7, 2014) – The Autism Society of Southeastern WI is proud to hold its 14th Annual Dylan’s Run for Autism, September 7, 2014.

The Autism Society of Southeastern Wisconsin has been serving families in our area for over 35 years. Dylan’s Run builds awareness about autism and generates dollars to support outreach and programming servicing all that are affected by autism in our 9-county service area in Southeastern Wisconsin. At the time the Run was established in 2001, the rate of Autism was 1 out of 500 children. It is now 1 in 68! There is an increase of need of services and support in our community.

Dylan is a 16 year-old boy whose family lives in the Milwaukee area. He was diagnosed with autism at the age of two and has battled the disability with the help of the Autism Society of Southeastern Wisconsin, ABA therapy, and medical intervention.

Thousands of families will join their friends, neighbors and colleagues to promote Autism acceptance, raise funds for Autism research and support the mission of Autism Society of Southeastern Wisconsin making this the largest single event promoting Autism Awareness in the State.

The opening ceremony kick-off is at 9:30 am at the Miller Stage on the Henry Meier Festival grounds and the 2 Mile Run/Walk begins at 10:30 am sharp. The closing ceremony, which includes an award ceremony, will take place directly following the race. This event is made possible through the generous support of our sponsors including Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin, Spectrum Investment Advisors and Indian Summer Festival.

More information is available at or by calling 414-988-1260. This event raises funds for the Autism Society of Southeastern Wisconsin which assists local families by providing support and programming for individuals on the Autism spectrum and their families. All of the money raised at this event stays in the community.
