2017 5K Run & Walk for Autism Acceptance

Team Brandon Walsh

Thank you for visiting Team Brandon's 2017 Walk page!!!

We are really looking forward to April 29th - one of our favorite days of the year - a day of fun, laughs, and a day to give back to a place who has done SO much for our families and 3500 families just like ours in Central MA!

Since Brandon's diagnosis at age 3, autism has become front and center in our everyday lives. Brandon has come so far and we were fortunate to have a place available to help us with all those changes. Over the years, we have participated in many outings with little or no cost to us: bowling, movies, apple picking, family day camp, and many other things. We have met many families just like ours, and developed some wonderful friendships!

When Brandon was diagnosed in 2006, the number of children affected by autism was 1 in 188. (Compared to 1 in 1000 just 6 years earlier) The latest prevelance is 1 in 45. The numbers continue to rise, and need is greater than ever - this is by far the biggest fundraiser the center does each year, and it greatly relies on the funds to be able to assist as many families as possible.

Please consider joining us on April 29th, it is a great day and fun for all! If you cannot, please donate to our team.....every penny of your donation goes directly to the center to help families just like ours right here in Central MA.

Thank you so much,

Tricia, Jason, Alicia, and Brandon
