“No one who achieves success does so without the help of others. The wise and confident acknowledge this help with gratitude.” – Alfred North Whitehead

My heart is filled with gratitude for our Walk Directors, Team Leaders, and over 100 volunteers that help make the annual Walk for Autism a huge success! After a two-year hiatus and a new venue – this crew did an outstanding job planning, organizing, and running the event! Our crew of Walk leaders and volunteers hit the ground running at 7 am and don’t stop or take a break until we are done around 4 pm. What a crew!!

I’m proud to be a part of the 2022 Walk Team for the 21st Annual Walk for Autism. All of you ROCKED IT! – Tish Bartlett, Executive Director.

Our 2022 Walk Directors – Dave Bartlett, Jay Spaeder, Ann Eisert, Mike Eisert, Wendy Zukowski, Jayson Spaeder, Israel Wodarski, and Tish Bartlett
