Event Description

Autism now affects one out of every 88 children in the United States. Autism Awareness Month is celebrated throughout April and the Kelberman Center will host its annual Walk for Autism on Saturday April 5 in Oneida (Oneida High School), Saturday April 26 in Boonville (VFW), Cooperstown (Glimmerglass State Park) and the Mohawk Valley (SUNYIT Campus Center) and on Sunday May 18 in Syracuse (Long Branch Park in Liverpool). All walks begin at 10:30am with registration beginning at 9:00am.

The Walk for Autism is the initiative of a group of parents heightening autism awareness in local communities and raising needed funds that will remain in Central New York. Family and friends are encouraged to join as parents, concerned citizens and advocates to take steps towards increased awareness and services for those with autism spectrum disorder. Sites will feature music, refreshments, activities, prizes, and the opportunity to socialize with those united by this common cause.
