I am a rising senior at Durham Academy, where I play on the tennis team. I also have a 14-year-old cousin with Autism, so, wanting to merge my desire to help people with special needs and my passion for tennis, I reached out to ACEing Autism about a potential Durham/Chapel Hill, NC location. ACEing Autism organizes and holds tennis clinics for children with Autism in over 50 cities across the United States, and I am now working with its team, as a new program director, to open a location in Durham/Chapel Hill. Our program is set to launch in September 2017 (http://aceingautism.org/locations/durham-nc/). We are looking to raise money to cover the cost of attendance for up to 15 participants so that families are able to more easily send their children to our clinics. Please help me reach my goal of $1,500 to "connect kids through tennis".
ACEing Autism is a national non-profit whose mission is to "make the sport of tennis available to children with Autism, use tennis as a means to enhance health and fitness, hand-eye coordination and motor development, and improve the social skills for children with Autism", all while making sure the kids have the most fun possible.
