The Walk 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.
Autism Speaks Canada runs events throughout the year. Your support and involvement will not only help achieve its Vision and Mission but will offer tangible and significant benefits.
Friends of Autism Speaks Canada have a proud tradition of organizing grassroots initiatives to raise awareness and funds in support of our mission. Whether they opt to organize a dinner dance or organize a school or workplace fundraiser.
How many kms will we cover?
This is your opportunity to run an international or local marathon, rappel down a building or push yourself to the limit to help raise funds to help those living with autism. Whether you run with us or on your own there is a challenge made just for you! Read more about Team Up! and Team Up Your Way
