Walk Now for Autism Carolinas 2008


A community effort to try and tackle autism by putting piece by piece of the puzzle together. By joining the Walk Now for Autism you will experience the power of thousands united by a single cause. Simply start a corporate, school, or family team today! The event will take place:

Saturday, October 4, 2008
Lowe's Motor Speedway - Concord, NC

The day will be a fun-filled experience with entertainment, refreshments, an autism community resource fair, and much more.  

By raising $100 you will earn your own commemorative Walk Now for Autism t-shirt. 

Letter writing and email campaigns seem to be the most effective fund raising methods! 

The first graders at Torrence Creek Elementary, in Charlotte, NC, have already raised over $1,000 for the Carolinas Walk Now for Autism. This was an lesson on giving back to the community.


Anyone that raises $1,000. online for the event by Friday, September 29 will be entered into a drawing for a free dinner to The Melting Pot! 

The winner will be announced at the event.

What a wonderful event, have a great time.  It's so important to raise awareness about what autism is and how varied are the effects.  My friend, Adryon, works with autistic kids so I know a little more than I probably would have.  I am going to take my daughter to volunteer on a group day, to play with the kids.  Thanks for the post!

Chris: Thanks for coming by! It seems like there is sooooooo much of this too and like you said it is so varied. My husband has a great nephew that was diagnosed with this. Take care!
