The inspiration for the Royal Ball Run for Autism organization stems from the now 1 in 68 children who are diagnosed with autism each year. We will be running to celebrate their achievements, their courage, and their future!

Our goal is to increase awareness of autism and to support (and celebrate!) families and children touched by autism. Proceeds from the Royal Ball Run for Autism support local programs dedicated to autism treatment and awareness.

In our first six years, the Royal Ball Run for Autism has invested more than $150,000 in local autism programs thanks to the tremendous support of our participants and sponsors. Local programs include the Quad Cities Autism Center and the Augustana College Speech and Language Therapy program.
