Volunteers are the backbone of our organization. Our events would not be possible without the dedication and support of our volunteers and we are grateful for the time and talent that helps reduce costs and dedicate more funds to our mission.

We are seeking Autism Speaks Walk volunteers to assist in set-up and/or clean-up, greet participants as they arrive, support our children's interactive activities, assist with registration, or cheer our walkers on at mid-point water stops. You can even recruit your friends, family and coworkers to form a volunteer team!
