Autism group plans activities
My Circle of Girls, for girls with autism and their families, will be grabbing our sneakers and rolling up our sleeves to help build a stronger community through volunteerism in the Triangle this October.
MyCoG’s approach to building a stronger community through service is summarized by a quote once said by Mother Teresa: “I alone cannot change the world, but I can cast a stone across the waters to create many ripples.” Understanding how the collective group of girls involved with MyCoG can make a powerful impact on the Triangle community, the October 2014 activities for the group dedicated to giving back include:
• Oct. 11 – Walk in the Autism Society of North Carolina’s annual Run/Walk for Autism at Moore Square in downtown Raleigh. The first 20 girls to email firstname.lastname@example.org to commit to walking with MyCoG will receive a customized tutu for the event.
Never miss a local story.
• Oct. 25 – Clean up litter in Durham with Durham’s Big Sweep. The annual event allows supporters to select any day in October to clean up chosen areas which will help boost the image of Durham and protect fish and wildlife from harmful litter. According to Keep Durham Beautiful, last year’s annual fall clean up netted more than 10,000 pounds of trash and recyclables.
Those interested are asked to keep in mind to register to walk with MyCoG in the Run/Walk for Autism, notification of interest must be sent to MyCoG via email by Oct. 9. Donations are not required to walk with the group, but are welcomed by visiting bit.ly/1tNzDNp. Participants are invited to register as an official walker with My Circle of Girls, but not required. Participants interested in volunteering for the litter clean up event should notify MyCoG via email by Oct. 17. Details about these volunteer opportunities will given once the participant expresses interest by emailing email@example.com.
