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 increasing awareness of autism spectrum disorders, to funding research into the causes, prevention and treatments for autism, and to advocating for the needs of individuals with autism and their families.
Alpha Xi Delta college chapters and alumnae associations across the country are committed to raising autism awareness in their communities and fundraising in support of Autism Speaks. In particular, our chapters and associations work to support Autism Speaks signature fundraising and awareness event, Walk Now for Autism. With one in 68 children diagnosed with autism and no known cure, Alpha Xi Deltas are committed to improving the lives of children and families affected by autism.
