Walk for Autism

Anyone can do it!

Every story needs to be told and every voice needs to be heard!

Walk for Autism


The Walk for Autism is held each year during April’s Autism Awareness Month festivities. Each year thousands of walkers gather in Lewes and Wilmington to share the Walk together – and raise over $200,000 to help support Autism Delaware services statewide!
