Today we blew bubbles at the 7th Annual Vancouver Walk Now for Autism Speaks.
Walking for autism awareness is important to me because it’s an opportunity for me to help bring much needed attention to autism. To me, it’s not about how much money was raised for the event, it’s about being part of a community. A community that understands and supports each other.
I mean, how many people can say they got to meet Darth Vader and the Star Wars Troopers AND support autism awareness, all in the same day!
Regardless of why you walk, or who you’re walking for, we walk together. Together we bring awareness to autism and that’s important. With 1 in 68 children now diagnosed with autism, awareness is key to understanding and acceptance.
After all, isn’t that what we all want? To be accepted?
