THE STORY:

Help us provide a GPS unit for every child with autism who wanders in the State of Michigan!

Do you know that 1 in 68 kids born today will be diagnosed with autism? For families with a loved one with autism, wandering is a huge concern. On top of that, children with autism who wander are drawn to water – they are attracted to the rhythmic sound and enveloping feeling of being in the water. Drowning is a leading cause of death for people with autism.

Money raised through the Arts, Beats & Eats Charity Challenge will benefit AAoM and raise awareness for the Sean Taglione Memorial GPS Program, which honors the memory of Sean Taglione, a 12-year old with autism who died from injuries sustained in a pedestrian automobile accident in 2012, shortly after he unexpectedly fled his home. To help reduce the incidence of fatalities like Sean’s, the Autism Alliance of Michigan is sponsoring EyezOn GPS devices to be given, at no cost, to families and to include the costs for a service plan for one year.

Be our top fundraiser in this Challenge and win your own personal safety training with Scott Schuelke, retired Lansing police Sergeant. Scott has trained over 9,000 first responders, families, and community workers in autism safety. You can have the training for yourself for one hour, or include family and friends or a local support group.
