More About the Miami
A Guide to Walk Day & Quiet Zone
View the Guide to Walk Day
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.
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 Angelica Ramcharran at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If your family or school team raises $3,500 or more by April 12, 2020, your team will receive reserved space in the Autism Speaks Walk Team Village. Teams hosted in the Team Village will have a 10' x 10' tent with a table & 6 chairs ready for you when you arrive on Walk Day! Perfect for team gatherings & picnics!

Volunteers are the backbone of Autism Speaks Walks. These events would not be possible without their dedication and support. We are grateful for their time and talent that helps reduce costs and dedicate more funds to our mission. Autism Speaks Walk volunteers can help in many ways assist in set-up and/or clean-up, greet participants as they arrive or cheer our walkers on at mid-point water stops. You can even recruit your friends, family and coworkers to form a volunteer team!
Any volunteers that have not previously registered with us will be asked to be a walker and no community service hours will be provided.
Anyone interested in attending the Walk must register to be a walker as part of a team or individual.
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.
