The New Posse

Raised $1,190.75



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!

The New Posse

Why We Walk... We are walking to honor the memory of our son Paul Xavier Wetshtein. Although he was only with us for 6 years, he taught us volumes. We walk for those who cannot speak for themselves. We walk to bring awareness to Autism and all its challenges. We walk to lend a helping hand to other parents who love someone with Autism. One small act of kindness can help to open doors for many people. Although our son is no longer with us, we walk to bring joy and comfort to others just like Paulie did. Even though he faced the challenges of Autism, he giggled and hugged his way into the hearts of many people. He was a superhero for his internal strength and the outward joy he brought to countless people. He is truly missed by all that knew him.

Join our team in raising funds to have a voice with legislators, 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 your fundraising journey today! Set your individual goal at $150 and you’ll be eligible for a Walk Tee Shirt – which, by the way, was purchased from a business that employs people with autism.
