Summer fun with the AuSM Community Unity Challenge

In a pandemic summer of canceled activities, social distancing, and mask wearing, AuSM wants to spread some summertime joy. We invite you to participate in the first ever AuSM Community Unity Challenge Aug. 14-16, 2020. Connect with friends and family. Get creative. Share kindness. All while having some quirky, scavenger-hunt-type of fun!

Participants in the Competitive and Family Brackets for the AuSM Community Unity Challenge will receive a list of mini challenges ranging from random acts of kindness to the absolutely bizarre. You and your team will take photos or videos of the mini challenges and submit them to win the top prize!

Mini challenges will be completed by your team at the pace you choose, in the space you choose, throughout the event weekend. Assign tasks to each team member, or complete them together. The strategy is up to you.

What will you have to do as an AuSM Community Unity Challenge participating team? We can’t give too much away before the event begins on Aug. 14, but here are some possible challenges:

  • Finding a constellation on your face
  • Sharing your favorite stims
  • Turning recycling into beautiful jewelry

Competitive Bracket (All Ages and Abilities)

  • $15 per participant for teams of up to 7 participants
  • Longer and more challenging list of activities
  • Do not need to live and/or be in the same household to compete together

Family Bracket (All Ages and Abilities/Kid-Friendly)

  • $40 for a family of up to 5 ($5 for additional members)
  • Shorter challenge list, activities achievable by younger age team members
  • Do not need to live and/or be in the same household to compete together

Prizes will be awarded in the Competitive and Family Brackets. All proceeds from the AuSM Community Unity Challenge support AuSM’s programs and services for the local autism community.
