DFW Walk Now for Autism Speaks at Texas Motor Speedway
Join us for the 11th annual Dallas/Fort Worth Walk Now for Autism Speaks, a fundraising and awareness event. There is no fee to join the walk, but participants are asked to fund raise. All event proceeds will support Autism Speaks’ work, both locally and nationally, to increase awareness about the growing autism health crisis, fund innovative autism research and family services, and advocate for the needs of individuals with autism and their families in the DFW area and beyond.
Autism Spectrum Disorder is now diagnosed in 1 in every 68 children, including 1 in 42 boys, making it the fastest-growing serious developmental disability in the U.S.
Walk Now for Autism Speaks offers a safe and fun day for families impacted by autism. The day includes a one and a half-mile Walk and Community Resource fair with educational sources, therapists, schools, recreational organizations, and creative child-friendly activities – a true “one-stop-shop” for families affected by autism. Music, bounce houses, trampolines, animals, clowns and many more family activities,
For the seventh consecutive year, Toys“R”Us and Babies“R”Us proudly serve as the national sponsors of Walk Now for Autism Speaks.
