Braving the chilly and windy weather, 6,000 people joined the Cleveland Walk Now for Autism Speaks at a new venue, Voinovich Park. The third annual event, which took place on Saturday, October 10, raised over $330,000. Walkers enjoyed a bounce house, a “pop-a-shot” basketball game provided by the Cleveland Cavaliers, a music man who played the accordion and a resource fair featuring more than 30 local providers. Grand Club members, who each raised $1,000 or more, enjoyed a special treat – pancakes and quiche cooked by chef Brian Doyle. Brian Doyle is a Cleveland chef who participated recently in Autism Speaks to Wall Street: Third Annual Celebrity Chef Gala, in New York City. Special thanks to Walk Chairs Joe Kraft and Kathy Masterson for making the Cleveland Walk such a success.
