While Spectrum Racing has been founded by a group of multi-sport athletes, we welcome anyone in the community who wishes to help with our mission to spread the awareness of what Autism is and how we can help those affected.

We host many events throughout the year that will appeal to anyone regardless of their athletic abilities. We welcome anyone of any ability and background who wishes to help those in the Autism community around us.

The goals of the club are to organize group events including multi sport, raffles, movie nights, training, cookie drives, and more to raise awareness and funds to support the Autism services community. Spectrum Racing NFP is a non for profit public charity with the 501(c)(3) status.
