Walk Now for Autism Speaks Canada

The Walk Now events are the single most important annual fundraising initiative for Autism Speaks Canada to support Scientific Research, Services, Advocacy and Awareness.  Yet, the Walks are more than a fundraiser, they provide an incredible opportunity for the ASD community to come together and make connections and feel the support of donors, sponsors, local media, community partners, and corporate sponsors.  

Since 2005, Walk Now has grown to 8 signature Walks across Canada, involving over 11,000 walkers, volunteers, and corporations who came together to raise a significant amount of money to support our organization's mission.  In fact, Walk Now for Autism Speaks Canada had raised over $9.8 million since 2007.  It now takes place in over 100 cities across North America.

Participate, Volunteer, Donate.  

We need more walkers and volunteers to make our 2015 Walk Now events an even bigger success!  For more information about a Walk in your community please contact
