Coastal NC Run/Walk for Autism

Piedmont Wilmington recently sponsored and participated in the Coastal NC Run/Walk for Autism. Customer Care Rep, Carole Merkerson facilitated this event, and PSG raised approximately $500 for Autism! Carole has a family member with Autism and this cause is near and dear to her heart. Way to go PSG Wilmington Team!
More about the Event
Each day two North Carolina families have a child diagnosed with a form of autism. The incidence of autism is now 1 in 110 births and 1 in 70 for boys.

Individuals on the autism spectrum and their families need help and support in order to reach their full potential as contributing members of society.

Proceeds from the 4th Annual Coastal NC Run/Walk for Autism will be used to help support programs for individuals with autism living in Coastal North Carolina.
