Amy Holko's Story
Years ago, I was introduced to AutismUp and the amazing work this organization does to support individuals living with ASD and their families. I joined the ranks of AutismUp volunteers and have personally observed the development of innovative programming and services tailored to the growing community and especially those transitioning to adulthood.
During the pandemic, support services were transitioned to a virtual platform; as in-person programming resumes, AutismUp continues to develop new offerings tailored to address needs that are surfacing.
Please consider making a donation to AutismUp's KiteFlite campaign so that individuals and their families living with ASD will continue to have the support they need! Any contribution will help and is greatly appreciated!

It's our 10th annual KiteFlite Family FUNdraising Challenge! What began as a kite parade, has now grown to our biggest fundraiser and family festival at Sebreeze!
Our definition of KiteFlite is:
an act of lifting families with autism up; a journey to support those with autism taken with families & friends; an opportunity to come together and march in a kite parade and celebrate at Seabreeze on August 14, 2022.
KiteFlite is unlike any other fundraiser around and we like to do things differently, including spelling. ; ) We don't actually fly kites, instead we march in a kite parade with custom-decorated team kites across the fundraising finish line! Pretty AU-some, right?
Create a KiteFlite team and begin giving back to AutismUp. All funds raised through August 14th will support the good stuff happening at AU, and help teams earn prizes, including tickets to Seabreeze on the 14th.
AutismUp is the leading 501(c)3 autism support organization in the Greater Rochester and surrounding areas. Founded in 2004, by a small group of parents of children with Autism Spectrum Disorder, AutismUp has grown to include more than 3,100 families. We rely on donations to expand and enhance programs and services for individuals with autism spectrum disorder, and their families, that improve quality of life. Learn more at autismup.org.
