The Theta Omega Chapter of Alpha Xi Delta is excited to bring Autism Speaks to the New Mexico State University community. The world's largest autism advocacy organization, Autism Speaks is dedicated to promoting solutions, across the spectrum and throughout the lifespan, for the needs of individuals with autism and their families through advocacy and support; increasing understanding and acceptance of people with autism spectrum disorder; and advancing research into causes and better interventions for autism spectrum disorder and related conditions. Autism Speaks enhances lives today and is accelerating a spectrum of solutions for tomorrow.
Our sisters look forward to increasing autism awareness on our campus and working with Autism Speaks. With 1 in 68 children diagnosed with autism and no known cure, Alpha Xi Delta is committed to improving the lives of children and families affected by autism. We hope our fundraising and awareness efforts can help put one more piece of the autism puzzle in place. At the Theta Omega chapter of Alpha Xi Delta, we host philanthropy events throughout the year to raise funds as well as awareness for Autism Speaks!
"AmaXIng Challenge: Step it Up 5k Run/Walk" Step It Up is an on campus run where students, staff, faculty, families, and all community memebers are invited to attend and help Alpha Xi Delta raise money and awareness for Autism Speaks. All entry fees and contributions are donated to Autism Speaks! In the Spring of 2017 the Theta Omega chapter of Alpha Xi Delta raised over $2,000 toward Autism Speaks!
Our chapter loves serving the commmunity as well as participating in events put forth by other Greek letter organizations. From the Children's Miracle Network to the Make A Wish Foundation, realizing our potential through philanthropic efforts is one of the most rewarding experiences our sisters can have. We have donated over $500 in the past year to help support fellow Greeks and their philanthropies.
