We are walking in support of Josie. Josie is a nonverbal 6-year-old Kindergartener with autism. She is so much more than a diagnosis. JoJo is sweet, silly, spunky, cuddly, and happy! She is a water bug and will happily play in any pool, tub, garden hose, or puddle. She loves music and books, which make her jump and squeal with delight. Her laugh is infectious, and her smile can cheer up anyone.
Josie is perfect just the way she is, but life can be difficult for her. Since Josie is nonverbal she gets very frustrated when we don’t understand what she wants. She has difficulties doing some tasks that many children younger than her can do with ease. She must work extremely hard to improve on different skills. Progress can be slow at times, but Josie continues to work hard. Our JoJo is amazing and makes us proud every day.
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 JoJo’s Circus 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.
