as of 11/9/2022

 

This year’s in-person Walk will take place at the Miami-Dade County Fair & Expo Center on Sunday, November 13, 2022, with registration opening at 8 a.m. Near or far, our community is best when we can rally together. We truly hope you choose to join us again in person, it’s going to be a great day!

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? Register today and stay tuned for any updates! 

The autism community has been profoundly impacted by the challenges brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic as well as the recent Hurricane, including disruptions in routines, financial stress, limited access to necessary services and supports, and so much more. If you, your family or someone you know needs additional support, please contact our Autism Response Team.

In kindness,

Steven Greenblatt
Senior Manager, Florida
