AMS Autism Associates Club is a student-organized group at University of British Columbia. Just established in 2019, we have made several initiatives to interact with the autism spectrum disorder community. Our events include Music and Meet, Explore and Enjoy, Show on Snow with Cypress Mountain, Music Time and many more. Even amidst the pandemic, we continued to reach out our events through Zoom and connect many amazing ASD guest speakers with families. 

Our   Mission

To broaden our understanding of ASD and to interact with the community around us through fun events, such as hosting music concerts and crafting activities for children and families affected by ASD.

Please stay around from June 2nd to July 5th to keep up with our awesome photos and updates! We encourage YOU to share your stories with us also while participating in this fundraiser!

Join our team and help raise funds for AutismBC to support the autism community in BC!

In British Columbia, 1 in 40 children has an Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) diagnosis and there are approximately 60,000 children, youth, and adults on the spectrum.

AutismBC is a small, non-profit and registered charity that encourages the inclusion and acceptance of the entire autism community. We are a tight-knit and nimble organization that values the lived experience of our team and members. We prioritize listening to our members and making decisions that reflect their needs and wants.  We are a grassroots organization founded in 1975 to support people on the autism spectrum and their families. Since our humble beginnings, we have grown to become one of the most trusted non-profit organizations for autism in BC. We continue to support autistic individuals by providing parents and communities with knowledge and by engaging with people on the autism spectrum to create stronger, more diverse communities. 

Create your own peer-to-peer fundraising page where you can tell your personal story and ask for support. Join our team on run day or run, walk, roll, or ride anywhere in BC on your own route between June 2 & July 5. 100% of what you raise goes to AutismBC to fund programs. 

When you sign up for the Charity Challenge for AutismBC they'll keep you motivated with weekly email fitness tips, fundraising ideas, and additional prizes for top fundraisers! In addition to the marathon organizer packages, when you raise $100 you will receive a $10 gift card from AutismBC!     

Let's get moving!
