About Us

The Tyler Run for Autism (TRA)  is a 501c3 (non-profit entity) which was founded in May 2012 by parents of children with autism.  100% of funds raised are donated to organizations who provide medical services to children with autism and to programs that promote community inclusion!  Our passion is to ensure that children in East Texas receive the financial assistance they need to access quality medical treatments.
