On April 20th, our awareness unit will be pulling into Dorney Park where participants will gather to walk the 1.5 mile course to help raise money for the developmental brain disorder that’s affecting 1 in 88 children and tens of millions people across the world.
According to walknowforautismspeaks.org, the event runs from 8:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. with registration as well as the resource fair and activities opening at 8:30 a.m. and the walk beginning at 10 a.m.
Registration is open to the general public and there are no fees. Register for the walk online here.
Although rides will be closed the day of the walk, some of Dorney Park’s games will be open to raise money for autism. There will also be music, characters, face painting, tattoos, a resource fair, and food tent.
As autismspeaks.org states, autism costs a family $60,000 a year on average. This event has raised $236,000 so far. Those individuals that raise $150 or more will receive a 2013 Walk Now for Autism Speaks t-shirt, while those that raise $1,000 and over will receive VIP treatment the day of the walk, according to the Walk Now for Autism Speaks site.
Although there is currently no cure autism, with efforts such as the above, we can help spread awareness and raise funds for autism research and one day, find a cure.
