First and foremost, I am walking to celebrate my daughter, Madison. We want to acknowledge all of the hard work and success she has had thus far.
I am walking to give back to the autism community who has given so much to our Madison. From therapists to doctors and specialists, there are some very special people doing BIG things to make a difference in the lives of autistic people and their families.
I am walking to raise funds for the mission of Autism Speaks - to fuel innovative research and make connections to critical lifelong supports and services for the autism community.
Please support me by donating and help me meet my fundraising goal - and you, too, can join the team and make an impact for people living with autism!
Come walk with Madison!
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!
