On Saturday, October 10, 2,000 people joined the fifth annual Baltimore Walk Now for Autism Speaks held at Towson University, in Towson, Md., which raised nearly $161,000. Alpha Xi Delta sorority members from Towson University greeted attendees, checked in participants and kept the crowd fired up. The Baltimore Ravens’ mascot Poe, the Chick-fil-A cow and Toys”R”Us’ Geoffrey the Giraffe kept everyone entertained and their minds off the rainy weather. As a call to action, Maryland State Sen. Kathy Klausmeier (D-Baltimore County) urged the crowd to become more involved in autism awareness and advocacy. Many thanks go to Walk Chair Chris Manouse for the success of the event.
