About Autism Speaks Canada Walk
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.
Since 2005, the Walk has grown to 8 signature Walks, and in 2015 with the addition of our “Community Walk-in-a-box”, the number of our ASC Walks has, and will continue to grow, spreading autism awareness throughout Canada. The Walks involve over 11,000 walkers, volunteers, and corporations who come together to raise a significant amount of money to support our organization's mission. In fact, Autism Speaks Canada Walk has raised over $10.8 million since 2007. It now takes place in over 100 cities across North America.
