6th Annual Greater Hudson Valley Walk Now For Autism Speaks
October 19, 2013, Rockland Community College Field House, Suffern, NY.
The Walk Now for Autism Speaks events are the signature fundraising events for Autism Speaks, to support autism research, awareness and advocacy.
A safe and fun day for families. The day includes a two to three-mile Walk and Community Resource fair with educational sources, therapists, schools, recreational organizations, and creative child-friendly activities – a true “one-stop-shop” for families affected by autism.
All event proceeds will support Autism Speaks’ work, both locally and nationally, to increase awareness about the growing autism health crisis, fund innovative autism research and family services, and advocate for the needs of individuals with autism and their families in Greater Hudson Valley area and beyond.
Autism spectrum disorder is now diagnosed in 1 in every 88 children, including 1 in 54 boys, making it the fastest-growing serious developmental disability in the U.S.
