Event Description

Virtually run the Antioch Bridge with us to fundraise for our non profit filing!

We are We GET It! a group of parents with children on the Autism Spectrum. We began our mission to provide inclusion, education, and a community for our children on March 8, 2020. Since the start of the pandemic, our children have enjoyed virtual social groups to continue to build their socialization skills and make friends in an otherwise lonely year.

Most recently, we have been able to meet in person and continue our efforts of socialization and community for our kids. The events have become a inclusion of autistic and neurotypical kids that are fun, free of judgment, and supportive. We offer parent education, guest speakers, and support to all.

Our hope is to raise enough money to file to become a non profit and continue to provide mindful and positive events for Autistic children and branch out with a 2nd chapter outside of Contra Costa County. It's our dream that we will one day build a space for the autistic community and empower them to succeed by use of friendship, vocational activities, and special events. We would like to also eventually offer scholarships to graduating autistic seniors who plan to attend college. 

Please consider supporting our cause as it has already done so much good in the short year we've been active. We can do so much more as a non profit.
