Walk description:

Meeting Point: Coney Island Amusement Park

Walkers advocate and take action for the diverse needs of the autism community. Their efforts help generate funds that fuel innovative research and make connections to critical lifelong supports and services. Although simple in distance, the walk attendees are a diverse team of people that have autism or support someone that does. Families and friends walk side-by-side in a sensory friendly environment and take part in the many activities and vendor resources that are onsite. Access to the amusement park rides is exclusive to walk participants.

Distance:

1.6 km

Walk Charity 

Autism, or autism spectrum disorder, refers to a broad range of conditions characterized by challenges with social skills, repetitive behaviors, speech and nonverbal communication. We now know that there is not one autism but many subtypes, and each person with autism can have unique strengths and challenges. Most are caused by a combination of genetic and environmental influences, and many are accompanied by medical issues such as intestinal issues, seizures and sleep disturbances. An estimated 1 in 68 children in the U.S. is on the autism spectrum. Each one of us knows or is connected by someone with autism. We are becoming a society of resources and referrals to build a stronger support system for those we work, live or socialize with that are impacted by this disorder.

Donations can be made by various methods online, by mail or in person to a team captain.
