Many things are different this year, but the need for customized support and programming for those living with autism is not. In fact, support and opportunities are needed now more than ever! AutismUp's annual KiteFlite FUNdraising Challenge & Celebration is one way to ensure that critical skill building opportunities for growth continue. We're thrilled to announce our plans for KiteFlite 2020, social-distancing style!

KiteFlite Part 1: FUNdraising Challenge: June 20 - August 13 | JOIN NOW

The race to raise $54,000 in 54 days starts now! Easily form a "virtual" KiteFlite parade team here. Share your fundraiser with your friends and family and let them know why you are asking for their support to lift families with autism up.

KiteFlite Part 2: Community Celebration: Thursday, August 13 | 7-ish PM

We'll deck out our cars, show our spirit and convene shortly before dusk to conclude our fundraising challenge with a car kite parade followed by big screen entertainment at the Vintage Drive In! More event details will be announced soon including the feature film, contests & more!
