Saturday morning (04/05) you can help the Autism Society of Alabama solve the puzzle of autism spectrum disorders one step at a time!

Did you know that autism is the fastest growing developmental disability in the U.S., and affects over 50,000 people in Alabama alone? New statistics also indicate that autism affects 1 in 88 children. ASA has never been stronger or more focused on their mission and they need folks like you and I to take the first step and register.

'Walk for Autism' is a noncompetitive 2 mile awareness walk. Participants are welcome to bring strollers and wagons for youth participants. Previous team signage and t-shirts have been used to distinguish themselves from the other participants. The first person to finish the walk will be awarded with a first place finisher medal.

The ASA would also like to encouraging family, friends, and businesses to shine a light on autism awareness during April by lighting their porches and store fronts blue. Bulbs are available for $2 each or by the box. They’ll also be available for purchase at the walk.

The Tuscaloosa Walk for Autism will start and finish at the Tuscaloosa Magnet School at 315 McFarland Blvd. East and will start at 8am with day-of registration starting at 7am. You can also complete you registration online by clicking here.
