The Interbay Rotary Club is hosting Cycling For Autism on Saturday May 4, 2019 at the Courtney Campbell Causeway Trail in Tampa.
In the last 9 years we have raised nearly $200,000 to support individuals in our community who have an autism spectrum disorder.
Nine years ago, Tampa Interbay Rotary club made the decision to support autism services. Autism Spectrum Disorder is currently being diagnosed at the rate of 1/59 children. The monies raised will be donated to two programs that help people touched by autism spectrum disorder today when families need it most. The Applied Behavior Analysis Program and the Center for Autism and Related Disabilities at the University of South Florida will be the recipients of the donations to continue their work in delivering education, services, and support to individuals and their families.
Brew Ha, Ha Tampa Bay was a huge success! It was well-attended and featured dozens of assorted beers to sample. Most importantly, we raised a substantial amount of money to support ‘Starting Right, Now’ and its mission to stop the cycle of homelessness for younger generations through continued education and an active mentor relationship. Congratulations and a big “THANK YOU” to all who participated!
The event in 2017 was a huge success! We had over 375 people attend and raised $12,000 for Starting Right, Now. We look to grow our success for years to come so stay tuned for more details on the 2018-Brew Ha, Ha Tampa Bay.
