It has been a Great Race tradition to compete to raise money for the Vintage Car Rally Association (VCRA) Fight Against Autism. In honor of this year’s Great Race traveling Route 66, the goal of the 130 teams competing is to raise $66,000. Autism now affects 1 in 68 children, and the rate of autism has steadily grown over the last twenty years. It is the fastest growing developmental disorder, yet it is the most underfunded. Children with autism do progress, but early intervention is key. Let’s rally behind this cause and reach our fundraising goals. Like last year, 100% of the funds raised will go to support autism programs in schools, centers and institutions across the United States.
