I'm walking to raise funds for the mission of Autism Speaks - to fuel innovative research and make connections to critical lifelong supports and services for the autism community. Please support me by donating and help me meet my fundraising goal - and you, too, can join the team and make an impact for people living with autism! Another Reason I am doign this is because I habe Autism. I am high funtioning on the spectrum basicaly lbieng like everyone else. I have come very long way for the young man i've become. From the support of my family, friends, teachers from Middle/High School and College, I was very lucky to do most things folks could't even inmagine. It wasn't easy but I perservered. To all those who are on the spectrum, REACH FOR THE STARS AND NEVER GIVE UP!!
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!
