Join us as we walk to honor the lives of people living with autism spectrum disorder, their families, and the professionals who work with them. Form a team or participate as an individual walker. Teams are a fun way to get friends, families, classmates, or coworkers together and participate as a group.

In addition to walking, there will be inflatables, games, and other activities for children. We hope to have special appearances from the Masked Rider and Raider Red, as well as Superheroes and Star Wars friends. Community agency representatives and autism service providers will be on hand to share information about resources available in our area. 

Free t-shirts will be distributed while supplies last. 

Sorry, no pets or food allowed inside the soccer complex.
