The Autism Speaks U 5k Race/3k Walk, formerly We are Curing Autism Now (CAN), was a huge success! Presented by Beta Sigma Beta, the event on Saturday, April 14 drew over 1,200 participants and raised more than $85,000. With online fundraising open for an additional three months, it is still possible to break the $100,000 mark for the sixth year in a row.

Andrew Moses '07, Co-founder of Curing Autism Now, said "At a time when Penn State is faced with immense challenges, Beta Sig rose to the occasion and showed the world what Penn State really is all about and served as a great reminder as to what it means to be a Penn Stater."

Co-founder Adam Dorfman '07 added "It is truly remarkable that a philanthropic event started seven years ago at Penn State by Beta Sig has provided the foundation for a national initiative within Autism Speaks. The support of the brothers and alumni has been instrumental in the continued success of the annual Autism race." Follow this link to view more photos from the event.

Beta Sig would like to thank all of the alumni and students who contributed to this event. We all had a fun time raising money for a truly great cause.
