The success of Autism Speaks Walk depends on the dedication and support of its volunteers. Volunteers assist in many capacities - checking in participants, providing encouragement at water stops and cleaning up after the event which in turn reduces event costs and drives more funds directly to the mission. You can recruit friends, family and coworkers to form a volunteer team!

Autism Speaks is looking for Volunteers for the Pittsburgh Walk. The Walk is Sunday, September 20, 2020 at Schenley Park Flagstaff Hill. Volunteers are needed for setup and staging, registration, handing out food/drinks, t-shirts, etc. on Sunday and for finishing setup, working the Walk and tear down.

Volunteer as a Team

Recruit your friends, family and coworkers to form a volunteer team. We'll do our best to assign you to the same area so you can spend the day together. Please remind each member of your team to register online so that we know how many people to plan for. Include your team name and we will know you are together.

Volunteer as an Individual

Make new friends as you play an integral role in making your city's Autism Speaks Walk event a success.

Mission Statement

At Autism Speaks, our goal is to change the future for all who struggle with autism spectrum disorders. We are dedicated to funding global biomedical research into the causes, prevention, treatments, and cure for autism; to raising public awareness about autism and its effects on individuals, families, and society; and to bringing hope to all who deal with the hardships of this disorder. We are committed to raising the funds necessary to support these goals. Autism Speaks aims to bring the autism community together as one strong voice to urge the government and private sector to listen to our concerns and take action to address this urgent global health crisis. It is our firm belief that, working together, we will find the missing pieces of the puzzle. Autism Speaks. It's time to listen.

Description

A new child is diagnosed with autism every 20 minutes. For all the children and families stricken by this disorder -- and all those who will be -- the time to act is now.

Your volunteer efforts will help us as we raise funds for research studies that will help find a cure. With your support, we will transform a community of heartbreak into a community of hope.
