For The Love of CJ

Raised $1,424.95
Walk Goal $1,000



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!

For The Love of CJ

For the second year, I'm walking to raise funds for the mission of Autism Speaks - to fuel innovative research as well as make connections to critical lifelong support services for the autism community. But most importantly for my 4 year old autistic superhero, CJ whom everybody falls in love with when they see that handsome smile. His superpowers are his speed and his ability to keep you on your toes. Did I mention his smile will make you smile?Please support me by donating and helping me meet my fundraising goal - and you, too, can join the team and make an impact for people living with autism! Spread awareness, Spread Love & stay safe.

Thank you <3
