The Theta Rho Chapter of Alpha Xi Delta is excited to bring Autism Speaks to the CSU San Marcos campus community. As the world's largest autism advocacy organization, Autism Speaks is dedicated to increasing awareness of autism spectrum disorders; funding research into the causes, prevention, and treatments for autism; and advocating for the needs of individuals with autism and their families.
Our Sisters look forward to increasing autism awareness on our campus and working with Autism Speaks. With 1 in 68 children diagnosed with autism and no known cure, Alpha Xi Delta is committed to improving the lives of children and families affected by autism. We hope our fundraising and awareness efforts can help put one more piece of the autism puzzle in place.
What is AmaXing Challenge? AmaXIng Challenge is the official philanthropy event hosted by Alpha Xi Delta to engage the campus and community in raising funds for Alpha Xi Delta’s National Philanthropy, Autism Speaks. The goal is to help with raising funds and increase awareness of Autism. Alpha Xi Delta aims to positively impact the campus and community.
