MONROE — Friends and Neighbors in Action (FNA) will hold its 7th Annual 5K Race and Fun Walk on Saturday, Oct. 5, at Thompson Park in Monroe Township. Proceeds will benefit Parents Of Autistic Children (POAC).
Parents Of Autistic Children (POAC) is a non-profit organization founded in 1999. POAC’s mission is to improve the lives of children and adults with autism by providing scientifically-based training to parents, teachers, and other direct service providers. POAC supports ongoing quality research on the causes of autism, its symptoms, prevention, and a potential cure. In addition, POAC provides free recreational events for children and adults with autism and their families throughout the year. POAC does not charge a fee for any of its services and receives no government funding.
FNA is proud to partner with POAC for the benefit of children and adults with autism and their families. Please save the date and plan on joining us on October to run or walk, sponsor or volunteer. Register online at www.supportfna.com.
