2011 Central New Jersey Walk Now for Autism Speaks Recap 

Thursday, October 13, 2011 View Comments


It felt like summer at the 11th Annual Central NJ Walk Now for Autism Speaks on Sunday, October 9 at Mercer County Community College in West Windsor. 3,000 people came out to show their support of the local autism community. Together, we have raised $211,000 to date with donations still coming in to help us reach our goal of $254,000!

Walkers enjoyed plenty of family-friendly entertainment including performances by Montgomery High School and Hopewell Valley High School cheerleaders, Step by Step dancers, a rock wall and moon bounce, Magic Mike, The Circus Place, Boo Boos the Clown, Schafer Gymnastics, Home Depot Kids Workshop, and more. The Walk also featured a Community Resource Fair and Autism Speaks Information tent.

A special thanks to our Central NJ Walk sponsors: Toys"R"Us and Babies"R"Us, Ali’s World, Mt. Bethel Village, Janssen, Sports Authority and Official Radio Sponsor NJ 101.5.

A big shout out to the Central NJ Walk Planning Committee, chaired by Patty & Greg Gillette. You all dedicated so much of your time to make this event a very special day.



To our teams, walkers, donors, and volunteers... the Walk is a day full of camaraderie and hope for the autism community and we thank you for being a part of it!
