On Sunday, October 18, walkers raised $865,000 at the ninth annual Greater Boston Walk Now for Autism Speaks, which was held at Suffolk Downs Racetrack in East Boston, Mass. Despite a raging Nor’easter, more than 11,000 incredibly dedicated people walked the soggy racetrack.

The New England Chapter Board Chairman Larry Cancro greeted the crowd and thanked them and board member Sean O’Brien, President of the Local 25 Teamsters Union, thanked the walkers for their determination. Leslie Chambers, Autism Speaks’ EVP of field operations and chapter development, also cheered the brave, soggy walkers. Emcee Randy Price, a local personality from Channel 5, joined Autism Speaks leadership to cheer on the walkers at the start and finish lines.

Many thanks to the Planning Committee led by co-chairs Terri Farrell and Deirdre Legge for making the Greater Boston Walk such a wonderful success. Read more about the Walk here and become a fan of the Greater Boston Walk Now for Autism Speaks on Facebook.
