This event, held by Autism Speaks, takes place in 75 locations throughout the U.S., Canada, and the U.K. yearly. Registration is free, but participants are encouraged to collect donations. 100% of the proceeds help to fund research, awareness, advocacy, and family services for Autism Spectrum Disorders.
I will be joining a team for the Walk at Crandon Park in Miami tomorrow, February 22. I encourage you to find the event in your area and sign up! You can participate as an individual or as a member of a team. Events of this sort usually require a registration fee, so this is a great opportunity for everyone to just get outside for a little exercise that will count!
Even if you’re not interested or able to participate yourself, you can still show your support by visiting my page.

It promises to be a day of surprises! Mark Roithmayr, President of Autism Speaks will be hosting the Walk. The Miami Dolphins Alumni will be signing autographs and there will be guest appearances from Toys “R” Us Geoffrey, as well as Flipper and Lolita from the Miami Seaquarium. Music is provided by D.J. Gary Gore. Entertainment for children includes bounce houses, a petting zoo, super slides, petting ponies, the Orbitron and the Psycho Swing. Join Emcee Sandra Peebles from Univision, along with more special guests for a day of food, fun and music as well as a beautiful stroll along the beach! – official site
