The 2013 Kickoff to Walk Now for Autism Speaks Houston was a huge success! Past walkers, new walkers, supporters and volunteers met at the Downtown Aquarium this morning to kick off the 2013 Walk. Dr. Voigt, Director of the Texas Children's Hospital Autism Center, spoke about the staggering autism statistics affecting children today and how the Autism Center is providing support. Top walkers and teams from last year were recognized and presented with awards. Four teams illustrated their unique fundraising ideas. The event concluded with a raffle drawing complete with a signed JJ Watts Houston Texans football and Build-A-Bear Autism Speaks edition teddy bear!
