Autism Speaks Walk Tampa

Did you know that April is World Autism Month?

Did you know you can wear blue in support of Autism for World Autism Month?

Did you know that there is a Tampa Bay Walk to support Autism Speaks??

If you are unfamiliar with Autism, Autism is described...

Autism, or autism spectrum disorder, refers to a range of conditions characterized by challenges with social skills, repetitive behaviors, speech and nonverbal communication, as well as by unique strengths and differences.

On April 22, The Autism Speaks Walk is being held in Tampa. 

This walk is a beautiful way to donate, raise awareness and support those with autism and families with autistic loved ones. Autism Speaks is a non-profit organization and to learn more about what they do check out their website here, Autism Speaks. 

Also if you have any questions about early Autism, how to screen your child or just some simple steps and answers to your journey of concern, Autism Speaks has all those answers and outreach for you.

You can walk as a team, or as an individual. This is a fundraiser walk, with a minimum raised amount of 20.00. You can sponsor the walk and volunteer also to the cause and the walk. Volunteers are needed for the Tampa Bay Area walk and you can check out how to register to be a volunteer here.

I highly recommend you check out the website to see all that you can do or just to provide yourself with some information on the walk and Autism. If you do not live in the Tampa Bay Area, there might be a walk happening close to you.

I am proud to be an ambassador this year for the Autism Speaks walk here in Tampa Bay and hope to see you along the way.
