Thank you all so much for making the Walk Now for Autism a success. The rain didn't keep us away. It actually made it more special that so many people from Springfield and the surrounding areas turned out. The money is still being counted, but our team raised twenty eight hundred dollars. That is so awesome, five hundred more than last year!!!!! The money for the entire event is still being counted, but at last count it was 43,000 for Autism Speaks. They will then fund research to find a cure or cause for this disorder that is taking away a generation of young boys and girls. Autism Speaks is also giving grants to local service providers...so now our local community can see the difference we are making in the lives of our children.
