CBS Television Stations’ WWJ-TV (Detroit) is holding its annual Walk Now for Autism Speaks on September 15 at Kensington Metropark in Detroit.
The purpose of the walk is to support autism research and awareness. The station is encouraging viewers to participate with a corporate, school or family team. The station has put together a page on its site as a guide to the walk for interested participants. See here.
The annual walk is presented in partnership with the organization Autism Speaks, which is dedicated to promoting solutions, across the spectrum and throughout the life span, for the needs of individuals with autism and their families through advocacy and support, increasing understanding and acceptance of people with autism spectrum disorder; and advancing research into causes and better interventions for autism spectrum disorder and related conditions.
