Join us for the 4th Annual Walk for Autism!
***THE DEADLINE TO BE GUARANTEED A SHIRT IS MONDAY, APRIL 15!***
Special thanks to the Autism Alliance of Michigan, this year’s Event Sponsor!
Last year, over 600 people came out to support families affected by autism, be together as one community of autism, and help us raise funds for the important programs that we do. Thank you!
On Sunday, May 5, 2019, we will have a day filled with FUN, togetherness, food, kids’ activities, a Resource Fair, and a walk in John Ball Park! We hope you will join us!
Help us continue to respond to the growing needs of the autism community by bringing $25 in pledges to the Walk.
Your pledge of $25 gets you into the Walk and activities and gets you a t-shirt and a one-day pass to John Ball Zoo. Use your pass that day or save it for any other day in the 2018 season. Everyone over age 2 is asked to bring $25 in pledges to participate.
All the proceeds raised at this event will stay in Kent County and be used to fund the over $55,000 worth of programs and services we provide each year! WE PUT 70% OF EVERY DOLLAR WE RAISE RIGHT BACK INTO PROGRAMS AND SERVICES!
2018 AUTISM SUPPORT OF KENT COUNTY PROGRAM HIGHLIGHTS:
We pledged $10,000 to increase staffing at the Helen DeVos Children’s Hospital Autism Clinic to help decrease wait times to TWO weeks, from over six months, and increase the number of children served to 500 each year!
We also provide things like workshops and support groups, autism safety training for law enforcement and emergency personnel, our Project Lifesaver tracking system, friendship groups for teens, young adults and even older adults with HFS, support for West MI Special Hockey, and much much more!
We can’t wait to see you at the Zoo!
