PHOENIX — Starting Monday, KTAR News will partner with the Southwest Autism Research and Resource Center during the 9th-annual Action for Autism week.
Action for Autism will aim to bring listeners resources, education and personal accounts in an effort to find a cure for the neurodevelopmental disorder.
The week-long campaign will bring hourly features on both Arizona’s Morning News and Arizona’s Evening News each day, as well as feature one SARRC story per talk show.
For listeners who want to be involved, text “ACTION” to 411923 to become an Action Hero and get the opportunity to win a four-pack of tickets to the Arizona Diamondbacks v. Colorado Rockies game on April 29.
Thanks to our presenting sponsor Wells Fargo, your donations will be worth twice as much. Wells Fargo will be matching all Action Hero donations throughout the day.
In the last nine years, our generous KTAR News listeners have helped donate more than $3 million to SARRC.
