Raised $2,602.35
Walk Goal $500



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!

Our son Michael was diagnosed April of 2020 and has made tremendous progress ever since. As most of you know he loves animals, with elephants being his favorite. You can usually find him singing and dancing to any of his favorite songs; including but not limited to "Shake it off" or "Goodbye yellow brick road".

Our daughter Sofia was recently diagnosed and has already shown such growth in the past few months. She loves playing with baby dolls, climbing anything she can, and learning to swim. 

Today, over 70 million children and adults are affected by autism. Each of them, have unique strengths, challenges and potential. This organization has been a huge part of our families journey and we are incredibly grateful to be apart of it. 

Together, we have the power to enhance the lives of people with autism and make a meaningful difference. Thanks so much for your support! It means the world to us to have every single one of you be apart of "Our Village" and show your support for Michael & Sofia.
