Autism Speaks Walk is powered by the love of people with autism and the parents, grandparents, siblings, friends, relatives and providers who support them.

With every step you take and every dollar you raise, you help enhance lives today and accelerate a spectrum of solutions for tomorrow.

Autism Speaks Walk Register. Recruit. Results.

This year, we're getting creative and giving you several exciting options to determine how you want to come together as a community (in person or in spirit!), and celebrate how your commitment to raising vital funds for people with autism is making a real difference today and every day. Learn More

Option 1 – Go virtual and bring Walk home!

There is just as much fun to be had when you participate from home. Walk 1.54 miles with your friends and family (for the 1 in 54 U.S. kids with autism) or get together with your team to celebrate locally while maintaining safe social distancing recommendations.

Option 2 – Show us how you Walk to the beat of your own drum. Get creative!

If there's one thing we know about our Walk community... it's that there's no shortage of ways you show how much you care about people with autism. So, get those creative wheels turning, and show us your amazing, inspiring and shareable ideas (neighborhood car parade of your own? community scavenger hunt? sidewalk chalk art installation? online Bingo?) to celebrate Walk a little differently this year. Who knows, maybe your idea will inspire other Walkers to do the same!

Whether you're on the spectrum, love someone who is or are looking to support a diverse, accepting and kind community — you're invited. And no matter how you choose to join us, the way that works for you is the right way to participate.

Keep checking in so you don't miss a thing as we add new activities and details. Walk day is coming fast and we could not be more excited to see your smiling faces (from a safe distance!), your decorated cars, the signs in your yards and how you'll get creative to raise awareness and create a kinder, more inclusive world.

More About the Broward Walk

  • A Guide to Walk Day & Quiet Zone

    Sometimes the environment at an Autism Speaks Walk can become overwhelming for people with sensory sensitivities. The Autism Speaks Walk on Wheels allows individual control over the sensory environment since they will be in their vehicles the entire time. It reduced chance of wandering, open settings, water and fewer issues with large crowds. This event is an interactive car parade to celebrate the autism community. This re-imagined Autism Speaks Walk will allow people to engage, in real-time, in a safe format that adheres to your community's COVID-19 guidelines. Created with the autism community in mind, this is an exciting alternative to the traditional Walk for our volunteers, participants and staff.

  • Committee

    Autism Speaks Walks rely on volunteers to assist in many capacities through serving on a Walk committee. Committee volunteer opportunities include but are not limited to: team and participant recruitment and fundraising mentors, corporate sponsorship outreach, Walk media outreach, school outreach and more. You can recruit your friends, family and coworkers to become a part of the Walk committee! To learn more contact Lisa Boccia: BrowardWalk@AutismSpeaks.org or (786) 456-8919.

  • Team Village

    If your team raises $2,500+ and registers 15 walkers by September 1, your team will receive reserved space in the Autism Speaks Walk Team Village. There are a variety of benefits that come with having a spot in the Team Village: 10ft x10ft tent with 8 chairs, 1 table and 1 case of water.

  • The Grand Club

    What is the Grand Club?

    The Grand Club recognizes fundraisers for Autism Speaks Walk who raise at least $1000 or more prior to or at Walk day.

    Grand Club members receive special benefits that may include:

    • Names listed on Walk website
    • Commemorative Grand Club Pin

  • Volunteer

    The success of Autism Speaks Walk depends on the dedication and support of its volunteers. Volunteers assist in many capacities - checking in participants, providing encouragement at water stops and cleaning up after the event which in turn reduces event costs and drives more funds directly to the mission. You can recruit friends, family and coworkers to form a volunteer team!

    Volunteer as a Team

    Recruit your friends, family and coworkers to form a volunteer team. We'll do our best to assign you to the same area so you can spend the day together. Please remind each member of your team to register online so that we know how many people to plan for. Include your team name in the available field and we will know you are together.

    Volunteer as an Individual

    Make new friends as you play an integral role in making your city's Autism Speaks Walk event a success.

    You can also volunteer before the Walk. Select this option toward the bottom of the form. We will put you in touch with the Event Chairperson so they can help you get more involved.
