Rochester/ Finger Lakes
Walk Now for Autism Speaks

Saturday, October 11, 2014, 9:30AM

Monroe Community College

The 12th Annual Rochester/Finger Lakes Walk Now for Autism Speaks hosted 1,200 walkers on a beautiful sunny day. Families enjoyed bananas, water and various snacks from Wegmans and kids got the chance to play in bouncehouses, visit the Talking School Bus, get their faces painted and even tour a fire truck, ambulance and police vehicle.

Attendees also got the chance to meet multiple autism community resources and autism-related organizations at the Community Resource Fair. When the official Autism Speaks stage program began, we thanked all of our families for their support and announced the most exciting news of the day- we met our goal on walk day! Looking forward to an even sunnier day in 2015!

Join Autism Speaks as we walk to change the future for all who struggle with autism!

Walk Now for Autism Speaks is a fun-filled, family friendly event and is our single most powerful force to fund vital research that will lead us to the answers we need.
