2018 WALK FOR HOPE AND FAMILY FUN DAY
Walk For Hope is an annual family oriented event which aims to increase autism awareness while raising funds to support people with autism and their families. Money raised allows Autism Society Acadiana to provide stipends for families to attend autism-related seminars/conferences; award mini-grants for teachers and professionals; and host local conferences/workshops/trainings on autism topics. Proceeds also support our administrative office and resource library. We strive to make a positive impact on families affected by autism, assisting them as they travel along in their journey.
