Walk Now for Autism Speaks Canada

Walk Now for Autism Speaks Canada is a fun-filled, family friendly event and is our single most powerful force to fund vital research, raise money to support family services programs and initiatives, and heighten awareness about autism and the issues facing the local and national autism communities.

Experience the power of thousands united by a single cause by joining Walk Now for Autism Speaks Canada. Autism is the fastest-growing serious developmental disorder – we need more walkers, sponsors, teams and volunteers to join us as we try to find the missing pieces of the autism puzzle.
