We had a great day on Sunday, October 28th at our Inagural New Mexico Walk Now for Autism Speaks with over 500 participants raising over $25,000.
A huge "Thank You" to the community of New Mexico and all those who were a part of this amazing event. To see the excitement and gratitude in all the families, volunteers and resource providers to be a part of the first ever New Mexico Walk. It was an unforgettable day.
