Autism Speaks Canada - Our New Charitable Partner
We are excited to announce our new charitable partner, Autism Speaks Canada. Autism Speaks Canada is dedicated to funding global research into the causes, prevention, treatments and cure for autism. 
With 1 in 88 children  being diagnosed with autism spectrum disorders and a growing number of  adults with autism living with limited support, the need to find the missing pieces of the autism puzzle is greater than ever.  Autism Speaks Canada aims to bring the autism community together as one strong voice to urge the government and private sector to listen to the concerns of the community and take action to address this urgent global health crisis.
Their signature event, Walk Now for Autism Speaks, is a fun-filled, family friendly event and is the single most powerful force to fund vital research, raise money to support family services programs and initiatives, and heighten awareness about autism. Experience the power of thousands united by a single cause by joining Walk Now for Autism Speaks.  Dates and walk locations are posted on their website.
TRi KiDS athletes can fundraise for Autism Speaks Canada by printing off a pledge form and asking family and friends to sponsor your race.  Athletes who raise a minimum of $40 for any of our three charities will be entered in the season-ending draw for one of two Springfree Trampolines.

EnergyTM bar. Full of fruit, whole grains, sunflower, flax, dark chocolate chips, and SunRype's Okanagan EnergyTM blend of pea protein, green tea and ginseng to provide a safe and natural energy boost.
