About the Eagles Autism Challenge

Join Children's Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP) virtually on Saturday, September 26, at the Eagles Autism Challenge!

Although we won’t be together physically, we look forward to coming together virtually with the goal of taking action for autism.

By joining the Challenge, you'll help to power fresh ways of thinking and provide much-needed support to make a lasting impact in the field of autism. What we learn here at CHOP will be shared nationally and globally, so that everyone affected by autism can benefit from our collaborative efforts — for those currently affected by ASD, and for future generations.

We hope you’ll join us in supporting tomorrow's breakthroughs for children with autism!

What past participants have to say:

The Eagles Autism Challenge was such a wonderful event. It was great to see so many people working together toward the same goal. It is so important to support research efforts that will impact our friends with autism.”

“It is an opportunity for me, as a CHOP employee, to make a commitment to have a personal hand in funding the breakthroughs that I so often hear about at work.”

To me, the EAC meant acceptance. It was great to see people from various levels of life all come out, no matter the weather, with huge smiles on their faces to support those touched by Autism. The more research we can do and awareness we spread is leading to much more acceptance in the world for people on the Autism spectrum ... One of my favorite moments was getting to talk with Philadelphia Eagles player, Jason Kelce, and seeing him during the walk. To see him stop in the bad weather to talk with so many people and take photos, showed that the Eagles organization, from all levels, really cared and enjoyed being part of this event.
