“I couldn’t be more excited to partner with the ASGO. Having a little sister with autism, this cause is close to my heart”, said Nick Zivolich, CEO of Best Damn Race and University of Central Florida graduate. “Our aid station volunteers will be members of the ASGO that includes individuals with autism. This will be part of a program to work on independent living skills, employment skills and social skills. We are honored to be a part of such an amazing program”

The Autism Society of Greater Orlando – ASGO – was founded in 1996 by a group of volunteer parents to better assist families of children and adults with autism in the Central Florida area. The mission of ASGO is that all individuals within the autistic spectrum will be provided a lifetime network of opportunities to become fully accepted, included, and actively participating members of our community, through family support, education, advocacy, and public awareness.
