Thank you to our Aut2Run Sponsors and Participants! Our 2nd Annual charity race on 4-6-14 at CSU Channel Islands was amazing and you helped us raise over $105.000 gross! All funds stay right here in Ventura County to support local families, kids and adults living with Autism.  Donations can still be made on this website or by mailing a check made out to ASVC to PO Box 1558, Camarillo, CA 93011.  Thank you!
