About the Eagles Autism Challenge
Join Children's Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP) on Saturday, August 21, 2021 at the Eagles Autism Challenge!
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!
Please note that while the 2021 Eagles Autism Challenge is currently scheduled as an in-person event, it is subject to move to an all-virtual format or be rescheduled based on guidance regarding social gatherings and the health and safety of our community, in EAC’s sole discretion.
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 represents the best of our terrific city and its citizens. We came together to support a tremendous cause and I feel privileged that my family and I were able to participate.”
— Member, Team CHOP
“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.”
— Member, Team CHOP Research
“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.”
