Bike Ride raises funds for Autism Society of Texas

Williamson County

The annual Autism Bike Ride and Fun Run drew a big crowd in Georgetown Sunday morning.

The ride offers a little something for bike riders of all abilities with a 9-mile, 24-mile and even 68-mile loop — all ending at Georgetown High School.

All proceeds support the work of the Autism Society of Texas.

“It’s used for advocacy. It’s used for adult recreation events. We have a social worker on staff that you can call to navigate schools and therapists,” said Jacquie Benestante, who is with Autism Society of Texas. β€œAll that money goes so we can make our programs free for adults and children with autism.”

Today’s event also included a 5K Fun Run and walk for people of all ages.
