KiteFlite is a free, autism-friendly, family event hosted by AutismUp and our event sponsors. It is our version of a “walk” and an opportunity for our members, their friends & families, and others in the community – both near and far – to help us provide daily support for those living with autism locally by pledging to support your team as it marches in our Kite Parade around Capelli Stadium.  Fundraising is easy using our online mobile platform – Crowdrise – and answers the question often posed by supportive family and friends, “How can I help?” The parade is followed by a huge festival open to all regardless of participation in the parade.

We hope you will be a part of our effort to raise $75,000 at KiteFlite 2017, allowing AutismUp to continue to build a future for the autism community.  Come check out what we are doing at our new multi-sensory learning environment at 855 Publishers Parkway in Webster – we’d love to show you around!  If you would like to participate and would like more information, call us at (585) 248-9011 or email and we’ll follow up with you.
