Chafe 150 is contributing the proceeds of the ride to the Lake Pend Oreille School District. This will help staff to better meet the needs of students within the Autism Spectrum. Autism typically appears during the first three years of life and affects a person’s ability to communicate and interact with others. Autism currently impacts 1 in 68 children, and studies show that autism is four to five times more common in boys than girls. By way of comparison, more children are diagnosed with autism each year than with juvenile diabetes, AIDS or cancer, combined.
