ACT is very pleased to announce that we raised over $15,000 at the 1st Annual Seymour Triple G fundraiser, thanks to the support from the cycling community and in particular, LomaBike and all our donors and sponsors. To see the complete list of our supporters, visit the Seymour Triple G Thank You page, or download the Thank You Brochure.

The ride took place on Saturday, June 25th, it was an ultra-intense 12 kilometer ride up Mt. Seymour to raise money and awareness for ACT – Autism Community Training. Cyclists braved the ride up Mt Seymour, with the last few kilometers shrouded in dense fog. The top male rider, Paul Moffat made it in 41 minutes. He was closely followed by Morgan Cabot, top female cyclist. They both won a Mt. Seymour Ski Pass.

What’s Next for Autism Videos @ ACT

The goal of the Seymour Triple G was to raise money for the Autism Videos @ ACT. Thanks to the funds raised, ACT has hired an autism specialist to help edit the 10 presentations we have waiting to be added to Autism Videos @ ACT including:

  • Thriving in Youth with ASD – What Does it Take?
  • Positive Behavior Support: What Parents Need to Know!
  • Taking Control of the Future – Planning for Families with Special Needs
