Walk Now for Autism Speaks

On Sunday, July 29th over 200 island residents met at the newly restored Nantucket Dreamland Theater to kick-off the August 18 Walk Now for Autism Speaks, Nantucket.  Considered one of the oldest movie theaters in America, The Dreamland began its life as a Quaker Meeting House, was once a straw hat factory, part of a hotel, and finally, after being floated by barge to its present location in 1906, it became Nantucket’s first vaudeville house.

The Ontario Walk season wrapped up on Sunday June 24th with Waterloo-Wellington hosting its Inaugural Walk Now for Autism Speaks.   Records were broken and there was lots to celebrate as participants raised an incredible $165,000, which was more than TRIPLE the fundraising goal which was set!
