Autism Speaks National Board member Holly Robinson Peete was there with her husband, former NFL player Rodney Peete, and daughter Ryan. 

Lakers broadcaster John Ireland made a special trip from playoffs in New Orleans to be in attendance.  The Laker Girls provided the pre-walk warm-up.

Honored guests, Los Angeles City Councilmen Jose Huizar and Dennis Zine, presented a proclamation on behalf of the City to commemorate Autism Awareness Month.

Thank you to all the committee members, sponsors, team captains, walkers, donors and volunteers; we couldn't have done it without you!
