Wrights Attend Successful Palm Beach Walk Now for Autism Speaks

On Sunday, March 7, Autism Speaks Co-Founders Suzanne and Bob Wright joined the Palm Beach Walk Now for Autism Speaks.  It was a beautiful day for families with an amazing turn-out – approximately 5,000 people showed up to raise autism awareness and so far, over $285,000 has been raised.

Children from Discovery Key Elementary School sang the Pledge and then signed to “It’s a Wonderful World”. Samantha Mueller sang the National Anthem while the Lake Worth High School ROTC Color Guard presented the flag. Deejay Gary Gore kept the crowd entertained along with the theater department at Palm Beach Lakes High School who entertained families as they returned from a magnificent walk along the Intracoastal.
