Autism Involves Me, a Bentonville non-profit, held its annual walk to highlight the lack of services for kids with autism.

Autism Involves Me advocates have three avenues in the month of October through which they can provide support for the nonprofit organization: the Tee Off Fore Autism golf tournament, Scavenger Hunt and a 100k walk, run, bike or swim.

The group usually hosts a walk, but organizers say the modified fundraiser "is our way of keeping our tournament going while keeping everyone safe. This tournament will allow for social distancing while still enjoying a day of golf with your team."

Golfers must submit a photo of their team playing golf (or just at the golf course) and their score card during their scheduled tee time. Email your picture to [email protected] and post it to Facebook or Instagram and tag AIM using @AIMeveryday or #AIMeveryday.

For the 100k -- 62 miles -- supporters may walk, run, bike or swim all or part of the 62 miles. Registrants are asked to record their miles, on the honor system, and submit them to AIM on Oct. 31.

Each Scavenger Hunt searcher will receive an email Oct. 1 with clues for items throughout Benton and Washington counties, divided by city -- Bentonville, Rogers, Springdale and Fayetteville. "When you find an item you will have to take a selfie with the item and submit it to AIM."

Leaders explain opportunities for prizes as:

• One entry for every participant registration;

• Three entries for completing 20 miles of the 100k;

• Five entries for completing 40 miles of the 100k;

• Ten entries for completing all 62 miles of the 100k;

• One entry for every qualifying selfie submitted to AIM during the Scavenger Hunt;

• Five entries for solving all of the clues for a city. Solving all four cities garners 20 entries.
