BC Autism Awards 2020: The Everyday Heroes in our Story
October 25, 2020 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Join us as we share the stories of our everyday heroes who are changing the narrative on autism and inclusion. Together we will celebrate the passion, strengths, and achievements of volunteers, businesses, self-advocates, and community members across British Columbia.
Award winners will receive $1,000 to go towards a project that will advance their work in the category of their award, promoting the principles of inclusion and diversity.
Today in British Columbia there are over 60,000 community members on the autism spectrum. Autism touches 1 in every 40 children in B.C. which means there are thousands of families across the province who each year rely on AutismBC for support along their journey. At AutismBC we empower, support, and connect the autism community, providing credible information and resources, programs, workshops and special events for children and adults with autism. Our vision is of an inclusive society where people on the autism spectrum are living their best life.
On October 25th we celebrate some people making a difference in B.C. Tune in to hear their stories and honour their successes.
The ceremony and raffle draw will be broadcasted live on our YouTube Channel. Please register at the link below!
