The Long Meadow Lady Leopards will join the 2012 Greater Waterbury Walk Now for Autism Speaks on Saturday, June 2, 2012 at Library Park. The 19 women who work at Long Meadow Elementary School have raised funds for research and awareness through individual contributions, dress down days and cupcake sales.
The walk route is a 1.5 mile loop through the streets of Waterbury surrounding the park. Amanda Raus of NBC 30 Connecticut is the emcee for the event. There will be entertainment, local vendors and children activities.
Autism is the fastest-growing serious developmental disorder in the United States. Every 11 minutes, another family receives the devastating news that their child has an autism spectrum disorder.
