This year marks the 5th Anniversary of the Greater Hudson Valley Walk Now for Autism Speaks. The Walk is a unique fundraising event which creates a safe and fun day for families who are affected with autism. The day includes a Walk, a Community Resource fair with educational sources, therapists, schools, recreational organizations and creative child-friendly activities, live music and bouncy castles. Autism Speaks is dedicated to funding global biomedical research into the causes, prevention, treatments, and cure for autism; to raising public awareness about autism and its effects on individuals, families, and society, and to bringing hope to all who deal with the hardships of this disorder. It is our firm belief that, working together, we will find the missing pieces of the puzzle.
