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!

As many of you may know, Ethan and Evan were diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) within the last two years. Since their diagnosis, it has been a difficult journey with acquiring resources and services to assist them in maximizing their potential regarding verbal communication, social interactions and developing healthy coping mechanisms. However, with perseverance, dedication and a care team of specialists, we have been able to provide the boys with individualized support that have allowed them to progress and improve on their skill deficits. Ethan and Evan have unique strengths and challenges. How they input, process and analyze  information may be different, and it has taught us patience, compassion and understanding. 

Both of the boys are amazing in their own right  and have so much to contribute to their community and hopefully with increased awareness, support and resources, other families will be able to navigate their own journey with more assistance and care.

Please join me by donating to Autism Speaks to help enhance the lives of people with autism and make a meaningful difference. Thanks so much for your support!
