Autism Speaks Walk Register. Recruit. Results.

Now, more than ever, the autism community needs your support.

We are deeply saddened to announce that we will not be able to host a physical Walk on Island this summer or celebrate in person due to the ongoing pandemic. But we ask that you join us in the celebration of our community and our mission from the comfort and safety of your own homes, backyards or neighborhoods.

By registering and raising funds for the Nantucket Autism Speaks Walk, you can support Autism Speaks in our mission to promote solutions for the needs of people with autism and their families including those in urgent need of resources right now and drive our continued commitment to create a kinder, more inclusive world.

So join us on Saturday, August 15th from your own homes and neighborhoods by walking your way in honor of Autism Speaks 14th Annual Nantucket Walk.

More About the Nantucket

  • A Guide to Walk Day & Quiet Zone

    Sometimes the environment at an Autism Speaks Walk can become overwhelming for people with sensory sensitivities. All of our Walks allow access to a quiet space that can be used as a safe outlet if you or your loved one living with autism becomes overwhelmed. We recommend finding the quiet area of your Walk when you arrive and share its location with your team for ease of access later on in the day should it be needed.

  • 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 reach out to Jill Precopio at

  • 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.
