San Diego Walk Kickoff

August 08, 2015
Thursday night we had a successful prelude to our upcoming “12th Annual San Diego Walk Now for Autism Speaks 5k Walk and Autism Resource Fair.” The “End of Summer” themed Kick-Off Celebration, held at Dave and Buster’s (Mission Valley), brought out over 130 individuals, families, service providers, and teams, including our National Presenting Sponsors, Alpha Xi Delta’s. We had amazing presenters that represented the four pillars of Autism Speaks, awesome fundraising tools and tips for individuals and teams, a fun musical performance by our grant recipient, “Banding Together,” and an empowering speech entitled “There is Hope” by 22-year old self advocate Thomas Selbe. Everyone walked away with an inspirational feeling of why change happens when you walk.
