Join us on Saturday, June 4 for our first-ever Scoring Goals for Autism adult soccer tournament in Philadelphia, PA. We’ll be raising money for autism research including Dr. Jill Locke and mentor Dr. David Mandell‘s research which is currently being conducted at The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia’s Center for Autism Research.
A BIG thank you to volunteers Erin Lopes and Tim Bak who are organizing the tournament and are parents of a 11 year old son with autism. Raising funds for ASF represents hope for their family and every family who has a child with autism. “We wanted to organize an event where people could get a good workout, have some fun and raise some money for autism research,” Lopes said. “Funding autism research is a critical step in finding the answers to why so many children have autism and what treatments will help children living with the disorder.”
Even if you can’t come and play with us in Philadelphia you can make a donation to support an individual playing in the Scoring Goals for Autism tournament. Donate today!
