Diamond Brand hopes that their support of the event will complement the other educational initiatives they’ve already spearheaded with the ASNC to raise awareness of Autism and assist those in the area who have been diagnosed with Autism.
“We are encouraged by the growth of the Autism Society of North Carolina over the past few years, and will continue to do all we can to help the organization educate and raise awareness of the Autism Spectrum Disorder” said John Delaloye, CFO and Owner – Diamond Brand Outdoors. “The cause is one close to the hearts of many in our organization so we are proud to do whatever we can to help ASNC continue its great work.”
In addition to providing fiscal support for the event, Diamond Brand will also provide prizes, mainly consisting of Diamond Brand Outdoors gift cards for various amounts to the overall winners as well as the 1st, 2nd and 3rd place winner of each age category competing in the 5K, and the overall winners of the 1K race.
