Event Details

Powered by volunteers and families with loved ones on the autism spectrum, this fundraising effort generates vital funds for autism research and raises awareness about the increasing prevalence of autism, the fastest-growing serious developmental disorder, and the need for increased research funding to combat this complex disorder.

In 2012, Orange County Walk Now for Autism Speaks hosted 8,500 people and raised $255,000 for autism. Walk Now for Autism Speaks is North America’s largest grassroots autism walk.

Members of the media are invited to attend the event, interview and photograph participants, volunteers and special guests. Registration begins at 9 a.m., the opening ceremony is at 9:30 a.m. and the walk kicks off at 10:30 a.m.
