The Art Experience craft area, temporary tattoos, gift bags and other family fun!
Promoting employment, micro-businesses operated by individuals with special needs will be selling their items or services, including music played by our own DJ Mikester!
We will also host an information fair filled with area resources.
Registration is $12 per person, children 5 and under are free. Walkers who have registered by April 8th will receive a t-shirt.
While you raise funds, you will also be raising awareness. Since the Autism Society Oakland County began in 1985, the incidence of autism diagnosis has risen dramatically.
We focus on ensuring that all individuals with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) have access to much needed services and supports, because behind every number is someone who needs help today.
We also know the need to raise awareness within our community about autism as it relates to the amazing people who are sometimes your family members, often your neighbors and friends. The hope is that they will also be valued employees and productive members of our community.
The Walk 4 Autism efforts exist to support those impacted by autism right here in our community.
