As you all know, this event is much more than a walk, there are many other components included that unfortunately can't have rain. The rain date is Sunday, May 6, 2018. Please SPREAD THE WORD and tag any friends you know who may have been coming! Have a wonderful day, because today would have been PERFECT!***
All the best!
The tenth annual World Autism Awareness Day is this year! On Sunday, April 15th, I hope you can join our walk/ run benefiting Autism New Jersey at John P. Stevens High School in Edison, New Jersey from 9:00am-12:00pm! This is an OPEN, FREE event for everyone! Autism affects 1 in 68 children nationally. New Jersey has the highest rate, with autism affecting 1 in 41 children. This year, let's take measures to raise awareness and acceptance for children and people with autism throughout the world by coming together! The state of New Jersey does an amazing job coming together throughout the year to shine their light on autism. However, on such a grand day, I think it's important to unite as one on behalf of those with autism to shed our light, unite, educate and accept each others' differences. There will be a 1 mile and 5k (3.1 miles) walk/run taking place on the track outside of the school. You choose that day what you would like to participate in (walking or running and how far)! There will be raffles, give aways, snacks, games and entertainment! Create a team and sign up today! Teams can be anywhere from one person to as many as you'd like! Join a team already created (feel free the joint mine) or create your own team by clicking the "SET UP YOUR FUNDRAISER" button. Create team t-shirts if you'd like to show team spirit as you walk/run on World Autism Day! Or... Light it up and wear Blue!Don't forget to fundraise with your team!
