The sun was shining Saturday, April 20th at the Pasadena Rose Bowl as 40,000 people gathered for the 11th annual Los Angeles Walk Now for Autism Speaks. It was very inspiring to see so many come out after a very emotional week in our country in light of the recent bombings in Boston. With the help from our wonderful Production Team, our Walk Committee, the Pasadena Police, Fire Department and over 400 volunteers, it was a wonderful, safe and amazing day for everyone!
