    Help us meet our goal to raise $50,000 to support Bridgeview’s Meals for Members Program.

    Because of the stigma, those living with serious and persistent mental illness tend to isolate themselves from others. Bridgeview offers a warm and welcoming environment that promotes social interaction and support.

    One of the big draws for attendance at Bridgeview is the promise of a free lunch. The Meals for Members Program provides healthy and balanced lunches Monday-Friday at Bridgeview. Eating a noon meal provides an opportunity for members to connect with each other, and also plays an important role in their physical and emotional well-being.

    The Fraser Walk for Autism is a family–friendly walk around the first level of Mall of America filled with sensory activities, mascots, games, prizes and giveaways.

    You can rally a team or register as an individual. All participants receive breakfast. Fraser Walk for Autism t-shirts will be available on a first come first serve basis. In 2017, nearly 2,500 participants, volunteers and sponsors helped raised over $93,000 for services benefiting the local autism community.

    Today, 1 in 68 US children are diagnosed with autism. For many, an autism diagnosis begins a journey to see and experience life from a unique perspective. Each year, thousands of Minnesota families are faced with the challenge of navigating through the complexities of autism spectrum disorders.

    Your support through events like the Fraser Walk for Autism will help Fraser sustain current programs, and more importantly, help expand innovative services for children, adults and families affected by autism.
