We Thought They Said Rum

Raised $350



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!

We Thought They Said Rum

I have worked for Autism Speaks for 15 (!) years, mostly working remotely. AS is again offering a virtual walk option this year which means I can walk even though I don't live near a walk site. So, I'm walking to raise funds for this organization that I care so much about and work every day to further our mission.

Since walks aren't limited to geography this year, you can join my team if you'd like! If you set your individual goal at $150 and reach it, you’ll get a spiffy Walk T-Shirt.

1.54 miles (for the 1 in 54 U.S. children on the autism spectrum) is all it takes to be part of Team We Thought They Said Rum. We'll pick a day when everyone is available and walk wherever we are. And after we rum run (probably) walk, we can all have a virtual cheers together!
