The San Diego Walk Now for Autism Speaks took place on Saturday, October 2nd, 2010 at Liberty Station of Point Loma, San Diego. The Walk, chaired by Kay Curry, had 3000 people in attendance and raised over $90,000 to date.
Despite abnormal thunderstorms the day before and threats of rain the day of, the 6th annual Walk roared its way to another great year. Thousands of walkers filled the streets around NTC Park with one common goal in mind; to change the future for all who struggle with autism spectrum disorders. This year’s Walk featured 40 autism related service providers, local San Diego bands, a large area dedicated towards autism sciences informing parents and participants of the newest advances, and the new “Team Village”, which was occupied by 12 teams who raised $1500 by September 24th.
San Diego Walk Now for Autism Speaks is thankful for all of its participants, and especially Papa John’s Pizza for being once again our Visionary Sponsor. For more information about the Walk, visit our Facebook page at http://www.facebook.com/AutismSpeaks.SanDiego.
