This month of August, Easterseals Midwest has partnered with On the Run for its 12th annual All Stars for Autism campaign. Through August 31, participating On the Run and Dirt Cheap convenience store customers can round up for autism at the register or make a cash donation! “
Every August, our All Stars for Autism campaign gives St. Louisans a way to support their friends, neighbors, and fellow community members living with autism. This year, we're making it even easier to donate by simple rounding up at the register,” said Jeanne Marshall, Executive Vice President of Services and CPO at Easterseals Midwest. “Having a child with autism can cost a family $60,000 a year. The proceeds from All Stars for Autism help provide the therapy, education, and support services that are so very needed right now.”
Since 2008, On the Run has been creating a buzz around autism. When the All Stars for Autism awareness-raising and fundraising campaign first started, 1 in every 100 child was diagnosed with autism. Today, 1 in 54 are diagnosed, and On the Run’s support of children and families impacted by autism has become even more vital.
From August 1 through August 31, 2020, community members have the opportunity to be an "All Stars for Autism” by visiting any one of the participating 66 On the Run, Dirt Cheap, and U-Gas locations in Missouri and Illinois by rounding up for autism or making a cash donation.
A list of the participating gas stations in Missouri and Illinois can be found on the website here. Thank you for your support! For more information, visit www.easterseals.com/midwest.
