Walk Now for Autism Speaks, the nation’s largest grassroots autism walk program, is Autism Speaks’ signature fundraising and awareness event, taking place in communities across the United States, and Canada. Powered by volunteers and families with loved ones on the autism spectrum and local businesses and companies that employ those on the spectrum, this successful grassroots fundraising effort not only generates vital funds for autism research but also raises awareness about the increasing prevalence of autism and the need for increased research funding to combat this complex disorder.

The TVIA teens were able to lend a hand in the kid zone area with fitness activities, helping at the bounce house and also handing out water to walkers. As TVIA states, “We are an organization of young men who, together with their families, participate in structured programs of volunteerism, philanthropy, and personal development. It is through these programs that we believe these young men will grow up to become strong community leaders.”

These boys are headed in that direction with their bright volunteering futures ahead of them and many more events to participate in this year. For more information about TVIA please contact PresidentSD1@TVIA.org or visit www.TVIA.org
