The 2019 Houston Autism Speaks Walk event will take place Sat., Oct. 19 at Lynn Eusan Park at The University of Houston with an expected attendance of 5,000 supporters. Proceeds from Houston’s 15th annual Walk will support Autism Speaks’ mission to promote solutions, across the spectrum and throughout the life span, for the needs of individuals with autism and their families.
Autism Speaks Walk is the world’s largest fundraising event to enhance the lives of people with autism today and accelerate a spectrum of solutions for tomorrow. The events are powered by the love of parents, grandparents, children, siblings, friends, relatives, and support providers for the special people in their lives living with autism. Funds raised help fuel innovative research and make connections to critical lifelong supports and services.
The Houston Walk will include a 3k walk around The University’s campus and a Community Resource Fair to connect families with local educational resources, therapists, recreational programs and child-friendly activities.
