The Procede team races to support Autism

A team of Procede Software employees, led by Support Services Manager Sadaly Zendejas, walked 3.1 miles through Balboa Park for the 13th annual San Diego Race for Autism on Saturday, March 25, 2017.

The San Diego Race for Autism is an annual 5k run or 1-mile family walk to support local autism programs and services. NFAR, the organization hosting the race, has awarded 1.4 million dollars to community programs and classrooms thanks to support efforts such as this race.

In San Diego alone, over 19,000 individuals and their families are affected by autism, and this number keeps growing. 100% of the funds raised by this event help with treatment, vocational training, special education, and programs for parents with autistic children. By participating in the walk, Procede employees were able to show their support for thousands of affected children and their families in San Diego county.

For the third year in a row, employees of Procede Software joined a team formed by Sadaly to walk together in support of her son and others with autism. In addition to donating their time, employees also donated money to the cause, joining efforts to reach the team goal of $1,000.
