Here at the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP), our clinicians and researchers care for thousands of patients on the autism spectrum each year, and we see the challenges of autism every day. The causes of autism are still unclear, and there is no cure; so we are committed to accelerating groundbreaking research to benefit families at CHOP and across the country. Our goal is to develop game-changing new treatments and to maximize every person’s ability to live life as independently and fully as possible, while empowering families and professionals with the latest information on evidence-based treatment and resources available here and now.
Autism demands answers.
Finding them is one of the greatest challenges facing specialists and scientists today.
Join the Eagles Autism Challenge! Now is the time to work together!
About the Eagles Autism Challenge:
The Philadelphia Eagles share our drive to unlock the mysteries of autism, and created the Eagles Autism Challenge- a one-day bike race, walk, and 5K that will raise crucial funding to bring together a world-class autism research coalition that unites the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia, Drexel University, and Thomas Jefferson University and Jefferson Health. This multi-faceted team shares one common goal: to work together to provide the necessary resources and support to make a lasting impact on the understanding of Autism Spectrum Disorder.
On Friday evening, May 18th, 2018, the event will kick-off with a party at Lincoln Financial Field for everyone who registered for the event. Race Day Saturday, May 19th, will end with a celebration on the 50-yard line after racers cross the finish line. Click here to learn all the ways you can get involved!
By joining the Challenge, you’ll help to power fresh ways of thinking and provide much-needed support to make a lasting impact in the field of autism. What we learn here will be shared nationally and globally, so that everyone affected by autism can benefit from our collaborative efforts- for those currently affected by ASD, and for future generations.
