2012 Cumberland Walk Now for Autism Speaks

On a beautiful, sunny day in Cumberland, Maryland, 1,000 people looped the track at Allegany College for the tenth annual Cumberland Tri-State Walk Now for Autism Speaks event on Saturday, April 14, 2012.  Walk Chairperson, Marcy Hardinger led the opening ceremonies with special thanks to all Walk participants who came far and wide to enjoy the festivities of the day and support the urgent mission of Autism Speaks. 

Walkers enjoyed the moon bounce, face painting, autism race car and balloons galore!  Radio sponsors WTBO and GO106FM were on hand to broadcast the events of the day.  Special thanks to Kirsten Dixon photography for the beautiful photos!

It was a true success for the Cumberland community with $50,000 in the bank!  In the past 10 years, Cumberland walkers raised over $600,000.  Truly amazing!!!!  This tremendous success is due to the hard work and dedication of each volunteer, walker, team member, team captain, sponsor and in-kind donor.  Many, many thanks to Walk planning committee for all of their efforts year after year to organize and implement the Walk in Western Maryland. 

A very sincere and heartfelt thank you to Marcy Hardinger.  Marcy’s passion to better the life of her daughter Hannah and all others affected by autism in the Cumberland community is truly inspiring.    

THANK YOU CUMBERLAND for your continued commitment to changing the future for all who struggle with autism spectrum disorders.  Autism Speaks and Cumberland is listening!!
