The Autism Acceptance Walk is Back
World Autism Awareness Day
April 2, 2022 is the 15th annual World Autism Awareness Day! This is the day to wear blue to show your support of individuals on the autism spectrum. We've designed a special t-shirt in commemoration, so our families, friends, co-workers, schools and businesses can join in the movement. If you are a business and want to offer a casual day, simply visit our website to order t-shirts. Shirts are can be purchased below. The process is quick and proceeds will support our efforts in keeping our mission strong by providing meaningful programs for our families. This campaign brings much awareness to communities across the state. To order your Shine a Light on Blue shirt click here.
This event is so much more than awareness, the Autism Walk encourages individuals in cities across the state to invite their biggest supporters, friends, family, co-workers, and classmates to join them in celebrating the unique abilities individuals with autism bring to our community.
