NACOGDOCHES, Texas – The Stephen F. Austin Lumberjack baseball team showed up at the Helping House annual marathon in Nacogdoches to assist in the event.
The annual 5,000/10,000-meter run through the district of Nacogdoches is a USATF sanctioned event put on and directed by volunteers. With over 300 participants each year in the event, it has become successful as a fundraiser and as a community athletic event.
The primary purpose of The Helping House is to provide early intervention services to local children with a diagnosis on the autism spectrum. The goal of The Helping House is to provide networking and support for all families in the deep East Texas area who are affected by autism, whether their child is a full-time student at The Helping House or not.
The Helping House is a 501(c)3 organization, established in 2007 as a philanthropy to Nacogdoches and the surrounding communities. The organization is affiliated with United Way.
