On December 7, 2019, friends, family, and employees will ride for autism at the Cyclebar located in the Preston Forest Shopping Center at 11700 Preston Rd. in Dallas, TX. The event will take place to kick off the NEW MD Cares for Autism program. MD Medical Group’s goal is to host future events for individuals with autism, and to connect patients and families in the community with valuable organizations and resources.
Show your support– family and friends are invited to come out to ride with us! Participants will ride for 45 minutes and will receive a free shirt!
Proceeds will fund future events for individuals touched by autism.
MD Cares for Autism exists because Healthy Children- AAP research shows that starting an intervention program as soon as possible can improve outcomes for many children with autism.
