WALK NOW Has a Strong Finish for 2006 and Gears Up for 2007


Seasons of Success in ‘06…

Cure Autism Now's WALK NOW walkers, teams, volunteers and staff succeeded in raising over $6 million at 17 WALK NOW events nationwide in 2006. That's a 40% increase from WALK NOW events in 2005!

Congratulations to our volunteer committees across the country for breaking records beyond our wildest dreams, including our first million dollar WALK NOW events in Los Angeles and Chicago!
