Nantucket is gearing up this week for its much-anticipated 2013 Walk Now for Autism Speaks Walk on Saturday, August 17, at Jetties Beach. Every year, the entire island seems to descend upon Jetties to join Autism Speaks Co-founders Suzanne and Bob Wright as they walk for their grandson Christian, daughter Katie and son-in-law-Andreas. More than 1,000 people are expected this year – and all wearing Autism Speaks blue, as well as special t-shirts for their walk teams. Read more about the 2013 Nantucket Walk Kick-off event here and see photos and highlights from the 2012 Walk here. Plus, stay tuned for more coverage of the Nantucket Walk on our web site.
