Alejandro and his family have experienced firsthand the need to raise awareness about the developmental disorder and increase funding for programs available for families. Alejandro admires the support and opportunities that Canucks Autism Network (CAN) provides to families affected by autism. The network provides sports, recreational and social programs that meet the unique needs of those on the spectrum.

The past three el Santo CAN events, combined with other fundraising initiatives, have raised over $40,000 to support Canucks Autism Network.
