Come out and join the Kelberman Center as we celebrate 10 years of walking for autism! Autism Awareness Month is celebrated throughout April and the Kelberman Center will host its annual Walk for Autism on Saturday April 8 in Oneida (Oneida High School), on Saturday, April 15 at Hamilton College (Sadove Terrace) and finally on Saturday, April 29 in Boonville (V.F.W.), Cooperstown (Glimmerglass State Park) and Mohawk Valley (SUNY Polytechnic Institute.) The Boonville and Cooperstown events will feature both a walk and a 5k run. All walks/runs start at 10:30 am with registration beginning at 9:00 am.
Autism affects one out of every 68 children in the United States, making awareness within our communities more important than ever before. The Walk for Autism is the initiative of a group of parents to heighten autism awareness and raise needed funds that will remain in Central New York. All are encouraged to join as parents, family, friends and advocates take steps towards increased awareness and services for those with autism spectrum disorder. Walks will also feature music, refreshments, activities and prizes.
