Dallas/Ft. Worth Walk Now for Autism Speaks

On Saturday, November 14, 6,000 people joined the Dallas/Ft, Worth Walk Now for Autism Speaks at Rangers Ballpark, in Arlington, Texas. The event raised $325,000.

The fifth Dallas/Ft. Worth Walk Now for Autism Speaks had more teams, walkers, volunteers, and resource fair participants celebrating the wonderful people in their lives affected by autism, than ever before. The newly crowned Miss Fort Worth was on hand to share her family’s story, take part in the festivities, and sign autographs for the crowd.

Several groups provided entertainment for the day including Jazzercise of Southlake, Tarrant County Young Marines, Kristen Mangus from Alpha Xi Delta Alumni, Kids on the Block Puppeteers, VIP Shuttle Service Pedicabs and emcee Karen Borta of CBS 11.  By donating their time and talent they were able to help make the Dallas/Ft. Worth Walk Now for Autism Speaks the best yet!

Special thanks go to Ann Marie Arcadi and Barry Eggleston who served as Co-Walk Chairs. Read more about the Walk here and become a fan of the Dallas/Ft. Worth Walk Now for Autism Speaks on Facebook.
