Early diagnosis and intervention, access to appropriate services and supports, and increased awareness, will help lead to improved outcomes. Register for the Puzzle Pacer virtual run today to increase support for those with ASD! All registrants will receive a custom electronic race bib and a colorful 4″ Puzzle Pacer shoe medal.
