RENO — Pump It Up party center in Sparks will join more than 150 inflatable playgrounds across the country to take part in a nationwide fundraising event to benefit Autism Speaks.

The event kicks off on April 7 with a sensory jump from 3 to 5 p.m. This free bounce is open to children on the autism spectrum and a sibling. Donations will be accepted in the form of a puzzle piece donation card.

In conjunction with the sensory jump, Pump It Up of Reno-Sparks is taking part in a nationwide fundraising effort to benefit Autism Speaks: the third annual Great Open Jump. For a recommended donation to Autism Speaks, all area families can enjoy open play time from 6 to 9 p.m. on April 7. Pump It Up of Reno-Sparks will also offer puzzle piece contribution cards throughout the entire month of April for a recommended donation. All proceeds will benefit Autism Speaks.

“With its sensory-friendly facilities filled with large, soft inflatable play structures, Pump It Up provides an ideal environment for children on the spectrum,” said Scott Leibowitz, Autism Speaks national director of corporate relations. “By taking the initiative to create additional programs for children with autism, and to raise funds for Autism Speaks, Pump It Up is setting an example for other companies to follow. We look forward to collaborating on initiatives that will further our mission.”
