Austism Speaks was founded to raise money for research to help find a cure for autism. To donate, visit

2010 was a tough year for the Topping family as then 3 year old Liam Topping was diagnosed with Autism. But it did not take long for the Topping Brothers (Liam, Miles, and Harry III aka Trey) to circle their wagons and get into action fighting this increasingly prevalent condition which impacts 1 of every 88 children making it an epidemic.

Autism Speaks was founded in February 2005 by Bob and Suzanne Wright, grandparents of a child with autism.

Their longtime friend Bernie Marcus donated $25 million to help financially launch the organization. Since then, Autism Speaks has grown into the nation’s largest autism science and advocacy organization, dedicated to funding research into the causes, prevention, treatments and a cure for autism.

The organization is geared toward increasing awareness of autism spectrum disorder; and advocating for the needs of individuals with autism and their families. We are proud of what we’ve been able to accomplish and look forward to continued successes in the years ahead.
