Walk Now for Autism

Walk Now for Autism will be taking place at Sonoma State University in Rohnert Park on Saturday, April 19, 2008. See http://www.walknowforautism.org/sonoma for more details.

Walk Now for Autism is a fundraising event, which creates a safe and fun day for families who are affected with autism. The day includes a 2-3 mile walk and a Community Resource Fair with educational resources, therapists, schools, recreational organizations, and child-friendly activities; a true “one-stop-shop” for families affected by autism.

This successful event not only generates vital funds for autism research, but also raises awareness about the increasing prevalence of autism and the need to accelerate research funding to combat this complex disorder.
