Big shout out to Michelle Barrett – a great friend and mother of children with autism who poured her soul into today’s event!
There were surprise guests who came prepared to liven up the event! From Minions to princesses and batman!
From their website:
The Walk Now events are the single most important annual fundraising initiative for Autism Speaks Canada to support Scientific Research, Services, Advocacy, and Awareness. Taking place in more than 100 cities across North America, the Walks provide an incredible opportunity for the ASD community to come together, make connections, and feel the support of donors, sponsors, local media, community partners, and corporate sponsors.
Nice to see support from Ward 1 councillor Dan Gibson and his family as well!
To those dealing with autism in one way or another, I’d like to thank you for stepping up and making today a great one! Not just for those in attendance but to, (as I said above), bring awareness to our city!
