Go Long for Luke, a nonprofit that supports children with autism and other neurological disorders, will host its fifth annual flag football charity event Sept. 22 from 3 to 5 p.m. at Chastain Park in Buckhead.

Children ages 6 to 16 are invited to sign up to play flag football or make a donation (adults and other kids can also donate).

In 2013, twin brothers Cole and Jesse Faller and Sophie Greenfield created Go Long for Luke, a nonprofit, to support autism. Cole was inspired by his best friend, Luke Greenfield, 14, Sophie’s twin brother, who is autistic. Along with their parents, these kids created a truly memorable, innovative and remarkable fundraiser meant to send out a heartfelt message to Luke.

Luke attends the Jacobs Ladder School in Buckhead, and all proceeds will be going to that school, which serves children with all types of neurological disorders – autism, Down syndrome, cerebral palsy, brain injury to a range of learning disabilities and genetic disorders.

Chastain Park is located at 140 W. Wieuca Road.
