What is Zipping for Autism?

Zipping for Autism is an annual autism fundraiser benefitting families and programs in Western North Carolina. Individuals and teams from businesses, organizations, or just friends raise money to support the cause and - when they reach the threshold of $800 as a team - the team gets to go Ziplining at the Adventure Center of Asheville!

All donations raised by participants—100 percent!—support people with autism and their families in Western North Carolina. Thanks to people like you, we have raised $250,000 to support our region!

How Do I Participate?

Glad you asked!

The basics are simple: Get a team of up to 10 people together, raise some money, and enjoy a Ziplining Canopy Tour and/or a Climb through the Treetops Adventure Park at the Adventure Center of Asheville!
