One in 54 children nationwide will be diagnosed with autism this year. In Bexar County alone, 30,000 children are living with autism. More children will be diagnosed with autism this year than with AIDS, diabetes, and cancer combined. That means that you or someone you know has a close connection to a child or individual who lives with autism and whose daily lives are challenged by this diagnosis.
Many of these families are left feeling isolated, alone, and do not know where to turn for support. Often times the challenges faced by autism rips families apart. Even the strongest of family bonds can be torn.
This is where we need you! We kindly ask that you become a partner in hope by being a part of our 17th Annual Walk for Autism & Superhero 5K on Saturday, April 17, 2021 - virtually and car drive-thru parade.
The Walk for Autism is our largest fundraising event and brings together participants and community partners from across San Antonio, Bexar County, and South Texas. The overall goal is to provide services and support for families raising individuals with Autism. All the proceeds stay local to fund the many programs provided for families raising individuals with Autism at Any Baby Can of San Antonio.
As an Official Fiesta® San Antonio Event, the 17th Annual Walk for Autism will provide a virtual and in a car drive-thru setting where all families can enjoy an autism-friendly parade without judgment. The day is filled with our Superhero 5k in the morning on your own, virtually followed by the car-drive thru parade. Decorate your cars, make posters, create your one of a kind T-Shirt as we safely join to bring awareness, resources, and hope.
Your donation will truly help make a difference for the children in our community. We encourage you to please donate. Without donors like you, we would not be able to provide the programs and services at no cost to our children, families, and community. Be the hope that these children and families need.
