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!

Beau the extra mile

It’s that time of the year again to Beau The Extra Mile and walk to raise awareness for Autism. My son Beau was diagnosed on the spectrum right before he turned 2 years old. Before his diagnosis, I was unaware of many things in the world of Autism. Like the fact that it’s a developmental disorder that impacts the way someone communicates, learns and absorbs things, and how they socialize. Beau’s Autism is sensory processing, which means he loves to touch things! He loves textures, twirling things and stimming. He does this to regulate his body for when he’s excited, sad, scared or anxious. Even though he is on the spectrum, he is just like any 3 year old. He loves cheerios, watching Bluey, music, bubbles and playing with his big sissy. Having this diagnoses doesn’t make him different, it just makes him Au-some!
