I'm walking to raise for Autism speaks awareness. As some many know I have a little girl that's 21/2 years old that has been diagnosed with autism 7months ago. For the past 7 months she has had amazing services that support her. Day by day she has improved but still is nonverbal with some words here and there. The daily struggles as a mother to keep pushing forward and being strong having hope that one day my little girl will have her own voice is hard. I see the frustration she has at times when she can't tell or show how she feels to others and it brakes my heart every day but I know she is so smart and has a mom that will never let her down or make her feel she isn't good enough she will conquer the world.
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!
