2020 Zipping for Autism event at the Adventure Center of Asheville

2020 Zipping for Autism (ZFA) – sponsored by the Adventure Center of Asheville

ZFA is an annual event hosted by the Greiner Family (owners of the Adventure Center of Asheville) to honor their 18-year-old son, O’Reilly, who is on the autism spectrum.  The event, normally held the first Sunday in June, has been changed this year. The Adventure Center sets aside a Sunday every year and opens the Ziplines, Treetops Adventure Park and KidZip to teams who raised money or individuals that want to join in the festivities. 100% of the proceeds are donated to WNC Autism services and camps for local adults and children on the autism spectrum. The 2020 event is the ninth Zipping for Autism. Having raised over $250,000 since its inception, ZFA, is truly a family affair. O’Reilly has managed to be the top fundraiser almost every year. His buddy Nicholas Hemachandra has been another top fundraiser over the years. O’Reilly’s parents, Jeff and Sheena manage the day.  Other family members from as far away as Jacksonville, Florida or Charleston, SC are often in attendance helping check attendees in, feeding the staff or selling hotdogs to the public to make it all run smoothly. This year, we have FLEXIBLE ZIPPING DATES!   Teams will have until January 31, 2021 to raise money. Once the team reaches a fundraising threshold of $800, they can pick a date to enjoy Ziplining or an Adventure Park Tour at the Adventure Center of Asheville (ACA).

There is not alot to do on the practice trip but once you learn it the treetop adventure looks like alot of fun. Make sure to use a promo code because it's bit pricey.

Took the family here and my two boys (10 and 7) loved it. Very helpful and friendly staff. Participated in the smallest zipline course but the kids had a blast.

The entire staff was very pleasant and the instructors were very patient with our three kiddos. This was their first time zip lining and they had a blast! Will recommend to all of our friends when coming to visit!
