APRIL, AUTISM AWARENESS MONTH
The month of April is a special moment to inform the public and increase awareness regarding autism and other autism spectrum disorders. It also represents an opportunity to overcome prejudices, which are the main obstacle to the integration of those people in the community.
ENFANTS EN PREMIÈRE
Autisme Montréal is very pleased collaborate once again with the Enfants en Première event this year. This day-long event takes place at the Montreal Airport and gives children with autism spectrum disorder the chance to experience first-hand how airports work. Each participant can experience a simulation of travelling, from arrival at the airport to boarding the plane, without actually taking off.

SCOTIABANK CHARITY CHALLENGE
This month, we’re running for autism!
It’s that time of year again when we call on your participation and your hearts, in support of our organization! Autism Montreal is once again taking part in the Montreal 21K Charity Challenge, presented by Scotiabank. In recent years, thanks to the participation of a number of wonderful participants, the organization was able to support families who didn’t have the financial means to benefit from respite care services.
This year, the event will be both in person and virtual. This means that runners will be able to choose the option that suits them best;
- The virtual event will take place from March 24 to April 24, 2022;
- The live event will be held at Parc Jean Drapeau on Saturday, April 23 and Sunday, April 24, 2022.
- April 24, 2022.
Races offered include: 21K, 10K, 5K as well as the 1K for children’s races.
Our goal this year is to increase our number of participants and reach a target of $3,000. To do this, we need your participation! As a runner, the goal is to have fun, raise awareness and raise funds for autism.
