The Organization for Autism Research was founded to apply science to answer the daily questions and challenges that autism presents to individuals with autism, their families, teachers, and caregivers. OAR focuses on applied research and the practical value of its resource materials.

The OAR’s Endurance Challenge is a 54-day exercise and fundraising challenge dedicated to autism research. Starting on October 20th, each participant completes an endurance challenge by OAR’s founding day, December 13th. Challenges may be completed by any combination of running, walking, or cycling. Magnate CARES Coalition member, Karen Roberts, has completed her 119-mile challenge goal.
