12th Annual Pittsburgh
Walk Now for Autism Speaks

Saturday June 4, 2011

The Walk Now for Autism Speaks event isn't just about the donations. It's a whole lot of fun, too! The first time I saw just HOW many people attend this event, I was in complete awe. It's a family-friendly event, too. The pre-walk event has booths set up with free food, activities, games, and a variety of vendors. They even have a kids tent area. (One year we didn't even make it 1/4 mile of the 5k walk. Jadyne just could not handle the crowds. The kids tent was PERFECT for her with sensory activities and quiet play.)

What if I can't walk 5k?
That's right, technically it's a 5k walk, but it's ok if you can't make the trek. There's other ways to help our team fight autism!

  • Just showing up to support the team is a huge help!
  • Attend our meet and greet with none other than the guest of honor herself, Miss Jadyne. It's a sensory friendly finger painting event. (Please wear old clothes.) We make signs and banners and even team t-shirts.
  • Ask your local businesses to let Team Jadyne have a donation jar near their register. We'll supply the flyers and materials!
  • Post our link http://tinyurl.com/teamjadyne to your personal webpage, blog, social site, or twitter.
  • Talk with your family, friends, and co-workers about us.
  • There is no such thing as a donation too small. Please donate if you can, but donations are NOT required. Every little bit will help add up to our team goal of $1,000. Visit our site to donate online or to print a donation form for mail-in donations.


“Your child has autism.”

These four simple words define the facts. They are useful in explaining the past but they do not predict the future. They do not convey the devastating toll that autism has had on our family nor limit our determination to overcome this disorder. They are words that a new family will hear every 15 minutes.

By participating in this event, our hope is that we will soon hear “Your child no longer has autism.”


Together we can do this!
