Our Story

Autism Families CONNECTicut is very excited to partner with our long time supporter, The Doug Flutie Jr. Foundation and participate in the virtual Flutie 5K! This unique 5K fundraiser is crucial to continue AFC’s on-going virtual programs, which we immediately implemented in mid-March at the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic. All donations to our team will enable AFC to continue offering weekly virtual programs to help enrich the lives of families with autism, reduce their isolation and loneliness, and create community belonging. AFC remains 100% committed to providing virtual programming for these vulnerable individuals. Please support AFC as we team up with the Flutie Foundation to help people affected by autism live life to the fullest. Any questions, feel free to email Maria Mascoli, Go team AFC!


Help our team reach our goal for Dougie's Epic Adventure: A Magical Flutie 5K, to raise critical funds for the Doug Flutie Jr. Foundation for Autism to help people and families affected by autism live life to the fullest! 

Former NFL Quarterback, Doug Flutie, and his wife Laurie started the Doug Flutie, Jr. Flutie Foundation for Autism in 1998 after their son, Dougie, was diagnosed with autism at the age of three. Their personal experience of raising a son on the autism spectrum inspired them to help others on an equally long and challenging journey. Over its 22-year history, the Flutie Foundation has distributed over $15 million to partner schools and organizations who provide clinical therapies, respite services, recreational programs, social skills training, job supports and more for people and families affected by autism.The Flutie Foundation also provides direct financial support to families through initiatives like education technology tools, adaptive camp scholarships, safety equipment, to provide immediate help where it's needed the most.
