The 3rd annual Greater Waterbury Walk Now for Autism Speaks fundraising and awareness event will take place on Saturday, June 2, 2012 at Library Park, 267 Grand Street, Waterbury, CT. It is also a Family Fun Day for all ages.
This Walk also represents the Woodbury area as well. We are hoping for community support for this cause. Consider forming a team, volunteering, and/or donating. Also, looking for school teams and school community volunteer support.
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 Greater Waterbury area and beyond. Autism spectrum disorder is now diagnosed in 1 in every 110 children, including 1 in 70 boys, making it the fastest-growing serious developmental disability in the U.S.
