The Arc of the Triangle, Allegiant Airlines, TSA and The Arc of NC, are teaming up to host a Wings for Autism® event at the Raleigh-Durham International Airport (RDU) on August 19, 2018 at 12:00 in the afternoon!
Thank you to our partners!
The Wings for Autism® program is an airport “rehearsal” created to alleviate some of the stress that individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities and their families experience when traveling by air.
This event is open to individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities in the Triangle and beyond who seek a safe, but realistic, experience of traveling through a busy airport. More than 160 participants from the greater Raleigh-Durham area are expected to attend the event.
