About Us

The Tyler Run for Autism was founded in May 2012 by a group of parents with children with autism. It is established as a 501c3 (non-profit entity) dedicated to raising funds for children  with autism and other special needs to receive critical medical treatments. We are dedicated to fundraise throughout the year to make a difference in the lives of children in East Texas. We strive to offer scholarships to parents in need of financial support as well as support clinics that offer this type of therapy.
