Research has proven that exercise is beneficial to those with ASD, however not everyone affected has the ability to afford the expense of supervised training and is in need of financial assistance.
The ASD Fitness Center is located at 307 Racebrook Rd, Orange.
All funds collected will be used to award scholarships to those in need to attend the ASD Fitness Center — A facility specifically designed to provide a safe, comfortable and structured environment for empowering individuals with ASD to improve their level of physical fitness.
