Steps for Autism in Minnesota 2021 brings us together again

Our hearts are so full after coming together as a community this morning at Steps for Autism in Minnesota 2021. The clouds rolled in, but the rain held off, and participants, sponsors, partners, volunteers, staff, and AuSM Board members eagerly gathered at Como Lakeside Pavilion to see each other, collect resources, and have fun.

Thank you to our amazing emcee, Shannan Paul, for keeping the positive energy flowing, our many generous volunteers, and activity providers including Dānā Yoga; Ramsey County Library; Costumers for a Cause; Ramsey County Sheriff’s Office water safety and mounted patrol; North Star Therapy Animals; Three Rivers Park District; and AuSM Camps.

Thank you to our Platinum Sponsor, Best Care; Gold Sponsors: Accra Homecare; Autism Advocacy & Law Center, LLC; Caravel Autism Health; Centria Autism; Children’s Minnesota; PICS – Partners in Community Supports; and Tony Farah; Silver Sponsors: Allegra Downtown St. Paul; Fraser; IBIS – Infant Brain Imaging Study; Lifeworks Services, Inc.; Looking Forward Life Coaching; Minnesota Independence College & Community; MSP Intl Airport/MAC; Rumi; Spark – University of Minnesota; Bronze Sponsors: GT Independence; Hennepin County Sheriff’s Office; SEWA-Asian Indian Family Wellness; SwimPossible; and our Supporting Sponsors: Autism Speaks; Minnesota Department of Human Services (DHS); Talk To Me Technologies; Today’s Autistic Moment; and Twin Cities Music Therapy Services, LLC.

And thank you to all of our in-person and virtual participants and fundraisers. Happiness and smiles were abundant today!

We’re still working toward our fundraising goal for Steps for Autism in Minnesota 2021. Click here to donate today. Thank you!

100% of dollars raised through Steps for Autism are tax deductible, stay local, and support programs and services that help the 1 in 44 people affected by autism in Minnesota to grow and thrive.

For nearly half a century, the Autism Society of Minnesota has helped families and individuals with autism build a community that acts without judgment, searches for new possibilities, and connects us to each other. Dollars raised through Steps for Autism fund valuable programs and services that allow people affected by autism to grow and thrive.

As demand for scholarships for camp, social skills classes, trainings, and other educational events has increased, a portion of dollars raised during Steps for Autism also will go back to the Minnesota autism community through AuSM scholarships.

Thank you 2021, sponsors!
