Through the website you can register for the event, collect donations from family and friends and more.
How do I register for the Autism Speaks Memorial/Tribute (Thon) online?

What is unique about this website?
This website is so unique because it offers the capability for individuals to not only register for the event, but also to collect donations from their friends and family through a much more efficient mechanism. Autism Speaks Event Manager and the event Participant can track the progress of donation collections through viewing secured online reports.

We use industry-standard SSL encryption techniques to make sure that your credit card information, passwords, and personal information travel securely over the Internet. We have also installed an encryption engine on our database server so that your data is securely stored.
What is the long website address for that I received in my confirmation receipt?
This website address will take you to your personal donation page. This address link is automatically included in any emails that are sent through the email center in event headquarters after you have logged into the website. You can also copy and paste this link into any other form of email.
Can friends and family make a donation to a Participant by going through the main website?
Yes. On the home page of the website, friends and family can locate a Participant by clicking on the "Sponsor Participant" button. By typing in the name of the Participant, they will be directed to the Participant's personalized pledge page.
Is a portion of the registration fee a donation?
Yes. Your donation amount is the amount you paid for registration minus the gift value (if applicable). This donation amount will appear in your running donation totals.
Why is the "Sponsor Participant" search not finding a Participant that I know has registered?
You must type in the first name or last name of the Participant exactly how it is spelled. It is not case sensitive.
How can I see who has donated to me?
Go to the Log-in section on the site. Use the Username and Password that you received when you registered for the event. You can then view your Donor list and the amounts that have been donated.
I forgot my Username and Password. How can I find out what they are?
