Walk News and Updates

Updated September 16

In-Person or Virtual. Your Choice.

As of now, we're moving forward in hosting a Walk in-person and virtual. It's your choice.

The in-person Walk will take place at the BB&T Center on Sunday, September 26, 2021, with registration opening at 7:00 a.m. 2020 taught us that — near or far — our community is best when we can rally together. Whether you choose in-person or virtual, it’s going to be a great day!

We're monitoring the positivity rate of COVID-19 (daily and weekly averages) in Broward County and following the Florida Health COVID-19 guidelines. The safety of our volunteers and participants is very important.  We'll update this page and send notifications should it become necessary to make changes to the event.

In addition to fundraising to support the autism community by furthering the mission of Autism Speaks, you can share your story, connect with others, and earn great prizes. Ready to get started? If you haven't already, register today and stay tuned for more information on how we’ll come together this month.

In kindness,

Natasha LaMonica
Field Development Manager
