New Hampshire Walk Now for Autism Speaks

NH_2009_Walk

On Sunday, October 4, 1,800 walkers on more than 120 teams gathered at Greeley Park in Nashua for the seventh annual New Hampshire Walk Now for Autism Speaks, raising $170,000. The weather was cloudy and crisp, but the spirits were sunny and bright as the walkers stepped-off at 11:00 a.m. to celebrate their efforts on behalf of Autism Speaks.  Thanks to Wireless Zone for their continuing visionary sponsorship, to Coca Cola for the beverages and to T-Bones for providing the Walk day food. Wrap-around fundraising events were a large part of the Walk’s fundraising success. Mike Gibeault organized a great men’s hockey tournament which raised nearly $27,000.  Neil Stone and his crew, including committee member Heather Valcanas, raised over $10,000 with a karate kickathon. Many thanks to the Walk Co-Chairs Sue Parker and Kristine Hodgson, who were ably assisted by committee members Heather Valcanas and Amy Clement. And, of course, thanks to National Walk Sponsor Toys”R”Us and Geoffrey for their support and participation.
