CLINTON, N.Y- Saturday's sunny weather made for the perfect day for the Walk for Autism on Hamilton College.

The walk benefits the Kelberman Center which helps families and people with ASD (Autism Spectrum Disorder).

Registration started at 9am on Saturday. Dozens of families registered for the walk, some as teams.

Team Mason was one of those teams walking for Mason Scialdone who was diagnosed with Autism just before the age of 2.

Chris Schialdone says that Mason has benefited greatly from the Kelberman Center.

"You know he is a great kid and I just want to see him keep improving everyday. Without the Kelberman Center he wouldn't be at the level that he is right now so we really appreciate it," said Chris Schialdone.

Dr. Michael Kelberman said that the funds raised from Saturday's walk go towards funding the various programs that the Kelberman Center offers.

"We use every nickel of this money to support all of our families through all of the many programs that we have. Extensive recreation programs, we run three different summer camps, and everybody, everywhere can attend one of these camps whether they can afford it or not," said Kelberman.

The walk began at 10:30 am. The 1 mile walking course went throughout parts of the campus.

"Well you know the walk is really, well there's lots of walks for many different things. But its a chance for people to get together and share a vision and what we want to highlight about autism needs out there in the community," said Kelberman.

The next walk that they have is the Oneida walk which is on Saturday, April 27th at Oneida High School.

The Mohawk Valley walk is Saturday May 4th at SUNY Poly.
