2013 Walk Now for Autism Speaks, May 5th

Autism Speaks would like to thank supporters for the feedback they received from their 2012 walkers.  Autism Speaks realized that they need to provide a safe, fun autism friendly environment for their constituents. So, they’ve moved the 2013 NYC Walk!

Join them at their new venue:
Citi Field in Flushing, NY

With the new venue, they need to ensure that every single person who is walking is registered on the website.  This means children, grandma, friends; everyone will need to register.  To ensure that you are registered, Autism Speaks will be asking everyone to wear a wristband on Walk day.  To help eliminate any lines upon entering the venue, they will mail out the wristbands to the team captains two weeks prior to the walk with a list of all their team’s currently registered participants. Team captains will distribute the wristbands to their team and remind them to wear it on walk day!  For participants with sensory issues, it is fine if another team member wears their wristband for them.  It can also be placed on a bag or stroller; Autism Speaks just needs the wristband to be visible.

Join Autism Speaks as they walk to change the future for all who struggle with autism!

Walk Now for Autism Speaks is a fun-filled, family friendly event and is their single most powerful force to fund vital research that will lead individuals to the answers they need. Experience the power of thousands united by a single cause by joining Walk Now for Autism Speaks. Autism is the fastest-growing serious developmental disorder in the U.S. – they need more volunteers to join the fight.
