Thank You!

From all of us at Zipping for Autism, THANK YOU to all of our supporters and sponsors! With your help, we were able to raise over $25,000 to support our local autism community through programming right here in Western North Carolina! Thanks to you, more people with autism will have access to summer camp, parent support, and job training. 

We hope you enjoyed your summer and have had time to catch your breath. We've got some new and exciting developments in the works, so keep your eye on our facebook page and this website for more information in the months to come. Also, keep an eye on the Camp Lakey Gap facebook page and FIRST to see how your efforts have translated into sustaining their efforts and supporting new programs. 

We are restructuring the registration process for 2019 to make it easier for individuals to register and remove some of the confusion surrounding "teams." You will still be able to zip with people you want to zip with, but it will be a lot less confusing to register for it!

Thanks again for all your support, and we look forward to seeing you soon!


The Zipping for Autism Team

What is Zipping for Autism?

Zipping for Autism is a fundraiser created by a parent, teacher, and business owner who is passionate about services for people with ASD and their families. This event is a grass-roots effort by families, local businesses, and other supporters who realize it is up to the community to step up and make a difference in the lives of our neighbors.

ZFA was born in Western North Carolina and all of the funds remain in our region.  We have designed this event to be fun, motivating, and rewarding (with an emphasis on FUN!) This year, we are supporting Lakey Gap Autism Programs and FIRST.
