Autism Ride


The Autism Awareness Ride was launched in 2018 by Laurent and Allison Chapdelaine. The ride was created to raise awareness and funds to ensure people with autism have access to recreation and leisure. Over the last three years they have raised nearly $250,000. This year, Laurent and Allison have taken a step back from the planning, but they want to see this event grow and continue to make a difference. The St.Amant Foundation is beyond thankful to the Chapdelaine Family for what they started and we look forward to making this year’s ride another successful one on Sunday, September 12.

The proceeds from the 2021 Autism Ride will support the development of two new early learning classrooms to support pre-school children with autism to come class every day to learn, to have a chance to make new friends, and to give them the best chance to succeed in kindergarten. The funds will purchase classroom computers and custom software, iPads, specialized learning tools, art supplies, games and toys – everything that allows children to participate fully in life and give them the tools to reach their full potential.
