This year marks the 10th year we are walking as TEAM JACOB in honor of my son Jacob, who began speaking at the age of 3 shortly after his Early Intervention Services began. Our team began with just our immediate family and expanded in a few years to include our large network of family members and friends whom we all love dearly. Though we bgean walking for our son and for our family in many ways, we now walk for all those affected by autism. Because things happen when large groups of people come together to show solidarity and support and let's not forget the amount of money raised that every year goaes towards research, services, and events for those who are affected by autism.
Please join our team in raising funds to have a voice with legislators, to have access to the information and resources we need, to support research and medical discovery, and to help fund local services through the mission of Autism Speaks. Together, we can accomplish amazing things for people living with autism. Join the team and begin your fundraising journey today! Set your individual goal at $150 and you’ll be eligible for a Walk Tee Shirt – which, by the way, was purchased from a business that employs people with autism.
