Team Tyler was formed in honor of Tyler Savitz, who is now 18 and has Autism. Originally created by his brother, Spencer, and now led by 4 of his closest friends, Jack Elrad, Dylan Hardin, Brett Zasvlasky and Avi Bond, Team Tyler has raised over $1,300,000. Tyler is now a senior in high school, and will soon reach an age when public services are no longer available. 500,000 children with Autism will similarly become adults in the next 10 years and will lose the school and public support that was available during childhood. Those individuals will need housing, jobs and community support, which is currently incapable of meeting the coming demand for services. Autism Speaks is working to increase awareness, advocate for the rights of these individuals and provide research and support to change the future for all those living with Autism. It is truly a public health crisis and we need your support! Autism Speaks is dedicated to enhancing lives today and accelerating a spectrum of solutions for tomorrow.
Team Tyler is decicated to advocating, raising awareness, supporting and fundraising to help Tyler and all those living with Autism!
