Up for Autism will support IGNITE, a community center in Davidson for young
adults with high-functioning autism or Asperger's Syndrome. IGNITE offers
activities, skills training, and educational workshops that foster social,
financial, educational, and employment independence for its members. But most
importantly, IGNITE offers a social environment in which members can connect
with others and experience a sense of community. IGNITE is operated by the Autism
Society of North Carolina and was founded in 2012 by NASCAR champion crew chief
Ray Evernham, whose son, Ray J, has Asperger’s Syndrome.

Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) is a lifelong developmental
disability that typically appears during the first three years of life. A
prevalence study by the CDC indicates as many as 1 in 58 8-year-old
schoolchildren in North Carolina may be diagnosed with autism.
For more than 45 years, the Autism Society of North Carolina
has worked to address areas of need and expand services for the autism
community in North Carolina. ASNC works to directly improve the lives of
individuals affected by autism by providing advocacy, education, and services.
