The Epsilon Alpha Chapter of Alpha Xi Delta is excited to bring Autism Speaks to the University of Wisconsin - Eau Claire campus community. The world’s largest autism advocacy organization, Autism Speaks, is dedicated to promoting solutions, increasing understanding and acceptance, and advancing research into causes and better interventions for autism spectrum disorder and related conditions. Our chapter helps raise money for Autism Speaks through our two AmaXIng Challenges, our Teeter Totter-A-Thon in the spring and our Step It Up 5K in the fall.
Alpha Xi Delta college chapters and alumnae associations across the country are committed to raising autism understanding and acceptance in their communities and fundraising in support of Autism Speaks. In particular, our chapters and associations work to support Autism Speaks signature fundraising and understanding and acceptance event, Walk now for Autism Speaks. With 1 in 59 children diagnosed with autism, Alpha Xi Deltas are committed to improving the lives of children and families impacted by autism.
