Pom-poms, balloon arches, community fun and purpose the Autism Speaks Walk is back, and better than ever.

What makes the 2021 Walk even better? It has something for everyone! In addition to coming together in person to help create a world where all people with autism can reach their full potential, each Walk will retain the fun, remote-participation options introduced last year. Your safety is our priority and no matter how you choose to participate, your support will be recognized and celebrated. Our community is stronger together, and we can’t wait to celebrate one another and the amazing impact we are making together for people with autism and their families. Whether near or far, let’s rally together on Walk day!
