2012 New York City Walk Now for Autism Speaks

Autism Speaks

25,000 participants came out on Sunday, June 3 to support the Walk Now for Autism Speaks event at the South Street Seaport, in New York City.  So far we have raised over $700,000 (and counting!) to fund the most promising autism research, advance advocacy, provide family services, and raise autism awareness.  We are so close to our goal of $1.2 Million and need your help to get there. Launches Campaign to Benefit Autism Speaks

Our friends at, a top women’s lifestyle website, have launched “SheKnows Where the Other Sock Went,” an awareness and fundraising campaign benefitting Autism Speaks. The campaign will kick off at a star-studded celebration on the first Friday of Mercedes Benz Fashion Week in New York City.  The centerpiece of the campaign is a couture gown constructed from single socks donated by six-time Grammy Award winner and autism advocate Toni Braxton and designed by Project Runway star Michael Costello.
