Max's Pack

Raised $7,079.79
Walk Goal $5,000



Help us reach our goal!

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!

Max's Pack

Hi All! Thank you for visiting the Max's Pack page! As most know, Max has been working very hard and receiving several therapies since he was 18 months old. He currently is in a great preschool program with a wonderful support team. He recently went through diagnostic testing and Max was diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder. We have been learning a lot over the last few weeks and doing our best to understand the unique way Max sees the world. Our family is very eager to continue to support him as best as we can.

When you join our team, you become part of an amazing community of the most passionate and committed individuals, families, friends and professionals — all dedicated to helping people with autism reach their full potential. The incredible support of people like YOU over the years has made it possible for Autism Speaks to meet so many milestones — advancing life-enhancing breakthroughs in autism care, providing more free, personalized support, increasing childhood screening and intervention resources and working to create a more accepting, understanding and inclusive world for our broad and diverse community. But with more than 70 million people affected by autism today, there is still much more to be done. Please join the team — set your fundraising goal — and start making a difference today!
