In 2011, the Autism Society of Northern Virginia voted unanimously to rename April which is nationally knows as Autism Awareness Month and begin CELEBRATING April as AUTISM ACCEPTANCE Month.
Our mission in this walk is to celebrate the gifts and talents that individuals with autism bring to our community and fundraise to increase our Intervention Assistance Fund, which offers mini-grants to individuals and families for treatments and services to meet their goals to live as independently as possible on the spectrum.
This walk was a huge success over the last two years, raising over $29,000. The proceeds from each Autism Acceptance Walk will help adults and families on the autism spectrum throughout Northern Virginia by funding mini-grants that defray the costs of needed therapies and supports. Thank you to our teams, who really worked hard and showed great spirit. Thank you to our vendors and to our sponsors. Our community appreciates your support.
