TUCSON AUTISM WALK IS APRIL 6

The Autism Walk and Resource Fair is April 6. It’s an event for all families where everyone will enjoy their visit. The fair will be at Kino Veterans Memorial Stadium at Kino Sports Complex, 2500 E. Ajo Way. Registration begins at 7:30 a.m. The fair runs from 9 a.m.–1 p.m.

The fair offers informational booths for parents and fun activities for kids, performances, speakers and even a reptile show. The Autism Walk wants to help parents of autistic children find what they need to help their children have a happy childhood. The great thing is all Resource Fair events are free!

I spoke with Bree from the Autism Society and learned a lot about the Autism Walk. She told me that the Arizona Elks are a gold sponsor—they will have a booth, will be speaking before the walk and have donated at least $5,000 to the society!

 The event will begin with opening speeches and then the walk will start. There is a registration fee to participate in the walk. You can visit www.classy.org/event/13th-annual-autism-walk-and-resource-fair/e213290 for more details and to register.

The Autism Walk is similar to the Buddy Walk except a lot larger. I asked Bree why she was excited to do her part in the walk. She says she is excited because it helps lots of families with autism in their lives to find what they’re looking for. She’s really looking forward to it. So, if you know someone with autism or if you just want to support families, then come to the 13th annual Autism Walk!
