Walk Now for Autism Speaks is a fun-filled, family friendly event and the biggest fundraiser for Autism Speaks, working to fund vital research that will help children on the autism spectrum. Seattle Autism Speaks’ goal for 2011 is to raise $200,000 for local children and their families. They have reached just over $95,000, according to their Facebook page.
The Seattle Walk Now for Autism will be Saturday, September 17th at the Center Square in Seattle Center, 305 Harrison Street, Seattle.
The Walk is just over two kilometers (about 1.5 miles) and is self contained within the Seattle Center. It is both handicap and stroller accessible.
There will be an activity area for kids, where they can meet Geoffery from Toys R Us. And for parents, there’s plenty to discover at the Resource Fair.
Parking: Autism Speaks recommends particpants to park in the 5th Ave N Garage, just off Harrison. It is the closest garage to Center Square and is perfect for drop offs in the turnaround near the EMP. Parking ranges from $8 to $10 – and is good for 10 full hours.
