Autism Speaks Walk

April is Autism Awareness Month. There are many ways you can help raise awareness by donating to a good cause or by walking!

Autism Speaks Walk is the world’s largest autism fundraiser event dedicated to improving the lives of people with autism. The Cincinnati walk, originally scheduled for May 9 has been moved to Saturday, August 29.

Powered by the love of people with autism and the relatives and friends who support them, the funds raised through Autism Speaks walks ensure that people of all abilities will have access to the tools they need to lead their “best lives.”

Start a team, join a team or register as an individual to raise money for the autism community with a walk goal. Or, if you prefer not to walk, make a donation. The Cincinnati goal is to raise $220,000 of which $34,587 is now raised. The walk takes place at University of Cincinnati, 2935 Campus Green Drive, Cincinnati.

To learn more, contact Amy Schinner at 513-290-8355. To register or donate, head to Autism Speaks at autismspeaks.org/events/cincinnatiwalk-1.
