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!

Team Griffin

2021 Team Griffin– Its hard to believe we have been doing this walk since 2003. But then again its hard to believe Griffin is 24 yrs. old. When we first started, there was so much we didn’t know. Our hope was that Griffin would be able to say on his Harvard application “after overcoming the impact of early autism…” or that one day we would be able to dance at his wedding. Neither scenario now seems like a possibility.
I sometimes think of how different our lives would be and how focused I would be on the wrong things – did he get into the right school? is he running with the right crowd? - all the outward trappings of status and appearance. But along with the sadness and grief of “what could have beens”, I have also come to embrace the beauty and lessons I learn from Griffin each day. I have learned to listen - truly listen to what he is trying to communicate. I have learned patience – not just in trying to get out the door but to truly slow down and appreciate the moment. And I have learned acceptance – not resolution, acceptance.
What I know is that Griffin has changed my life. He has helped me to focus on the important things – family, health and safety. He has made me a much better person and made my life more purposeful. So I walk to celebrate, accept and appreciate Griffin – to step out of my own way, and join him on this path to growth.
