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!

Carla Sterling, Area Executive Director

Long Island Walk


Please come and join my team in raising funds to have a voice with legislators, to be able to have access to the information and resources we need, to support research and medical discovery, and to help fund local services through the mission of Autism Speaks.

Together, we can accomplish amazing things for people living with autism. Join the team and begin helping us bring awareness and support to those who have family members and friends who know someone or have a child or relative with autism.

I am doing this walk for my nephew Jacob Pedro, he is the reason why i named the team (Team JP). He is my inspiration. My nephew Jacob is a blessing to my family. Jacob was diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder at the tender age of one years old. Jacob has overcome many challenges growing up but he overcame those difficulties with help from many therapist and programs. Today Jacob is going to be 10 years old and very smart and bright. Pretty much challenging his teachers.

Autism isn't just a learning disorder, or a disability, it’s a daily challenge and learning experience for everyone not just the child or adult. Daily there is light shining onto the spectrum, it’s no longer a stigma. People are now learning to embrace and understand what autism spectrum disorder is all about due to the programs that are out there, everyday people are educating themselves about the spectrum. So please help me shine a little bit more light and help those families in need.

Please join me by donating to help Team JP & Shadow Ryderz reach our fundraising goal. Together, we have the power to enhance the lives of people with autism and make a meaningful difference. 

Thanks so much for your support!
