Autism Speaks Walk is the world’s largest fundraising event to enhance the lives of people with autism today and accelerate a spectrum of solutions for tomorrow. The Autism Speaks Walk brings together people with autism and the parents, grandparents, siblings, friends, relatives and providers who support them. We will need volunteers to help set up, take down, work the inflatables games, check people in the event, pass out event shirts, make sure vendors are good and the event starts on time and organized.
