On Saturday, October 1st over 1,500 people came together at the Richmond International Raceway for the 3rd Annual Richmond Walk Now for Autism Speaks. With 145 teams, we raised $90,000 and counting for Autism Speaks. Chelsea Washington of WRIC TV 8 kept the crowd fired up while we celebrated the passage of the Virginia Insurance Reform bill with Virginia State Senator Donald McEachin (D-Henrico)! Throughout the day, walkers enjoyed special performances from local bands, The Diggity Dudes and Silly Bus. A big thanks and congratulations to Walk Chair Pam Brooks and the entire Richmond Planning Committee!
