Join the ‘2014 Walk for Autism’ In Tuscaloosa Saturday
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.
