Support the Asperger’s Society of Ontario in the Scotiabank Charity Challenge



The Asperger’s Society of Ontario is asking you to lace up your sneakers and join them on October 18, 2015 for the Scotiabank® Toronto Waterfront Marathon®!

Founded in 2000, The Asperger’s Society of Ontario (ASO) is the only non-profit organization in Ontario solely devoted to serving the Asperger community. They offer direct support to individuals with Asperger Syndrome (AS), their families and caregivers, and provide information and resources related to Asperger Syndrome to the public in an effort to improve public and professional awareness and acceptance of the unique challenges, strengths and needs of individuals with AS and their families.

The ASO receives NO government funding and relies solely on donations and fundraising efforts to provide the services they do free of charge to the Asperger community… and beyond! Help them to continue fostering acceptance of Asperger Syndrome and providing services and support across Ontario by registering for the Scotiabank® Toronto Waterfront Marathon®.
