CYCLE OUT HOMELESSNESS
3rd Annual Family Promise Bike Event in partnership with AllOne Charities
Family Promise is a non-profit organization that provides a safe shelter for homeless children and their families, offering an alternative to sleeping in cars in local parking lots. The program’s budget is modest and provides a high return on investment. Family Promise organizes volunteers to prepare and serve meals and coordinates sleeping locations each week in area churches. By using volunteers, Family Promise leverages each dollar donated to the organization to provide more than $3 worth of services to homeless children and their families. This event will help raise money needed for operating expenses and bring awareness that there is homelessness in our communities. The goal of the community bike event is to raise $10,000. We need every community member to share the Family Promise story with their friends to help meet the fundraising goal. The money we raise will make a direct and positive impact on the homeless children enrolled in our program.
$35 for adult, $15 for child. Bike rentals available at $20.00 per bike. Must register by August 31st and be present day of the event to receive a cool Event T-shirt

19th Annual U.S. Conference on disABILITY
EXPLORING AUTISM ACROSS THE SPECTRUM: Building inclusive communities
Keynote Speaker: Dr. Temple Grandin
Dr. Temple Grandin is a world-renowned animal behaviorist and autism spokesperson. Born in 1947, Grandin was diagnosed with autism at the age of two. At the time, autism was considered a form of brain injury. Her parents worked tirelessly to secure the best possible care and instruction for their daughter. Still, social interactions were difficult for Grandin through middle and high school.
Grandin persevered, going on to earn a degree in psychology from Franklin Pierce College, a master’s degree in animal science from Arizona State University and a doctoral degree in animal science from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. She first spoke publicly about autism in the 1980’s, and has since become an autism advocate, worldwide.
She is widely known and respected for her work regarding animal welfare, neurology and philosophy, and has authored best-selling books and articles on this subject. She has received several honorary degrees, is a fellow of the American Society of Agricultural and Biological Engineers, and has been featured in television and radio shows. In 2010, HBO released the film Temple Grandin, which won five Emmy Awards.
In addition to presenting the opening keynote at the daylong Conference on DisAbility, Dr. Grandin will be featured at an evening Town Hall. At Dr. Grandin’s request there will be a special gathering especially for the youth of local 4-H groups.
Chris Banks, MBA., chief executive officer and president as of the Autism Society of America, and Jose Velasco, vice president of Product Management at SAP and SAP Autism at Work program will also deliver keynote addresses. The conference will also feature professional and family track sessions and a vendor expo.
The conference, to be held on the campus of the University of Scranton, is presented by the Panuska College of Professional Studies and the Edward R. Leahy, Jr. Endowment in partnership with AllOne Foundation. For information, contact Rebecca.Dalgin@scranton.edu or Lori.Bruch@scranton.edu or visit scranton.edu/disabilityconference.
