2010 South Dakota Walk Now for Autism Speaks

On Saturday, June 12, 2010, 400 participants gathered for the South Dakota Walk Now for Autism Speaks event.  Walkers braved the rain for the third consecutive year yet their spirits were not dampened.  Master of Ceremonies Ben Davis, Geoffrey of Toys”R”Us, Thunder with the Skyforce and other Sioux Falls area mascots greeted walkers through the balloon arch.  Everyone enjoyed the Sioux Falls Mariachi Band while making the loop of Kirkeby-Over Stadium at Augustana College.  To date $28,000 has been raised and counting! 

Special thanks to sponsors Augustana College, Results Radio/Cumulus Media, Epic Media, Jack’s Links and Behavior Care Specialists.  Congratulations to top teams Yankton River Rats, Team Tanner and Team BoBo, all 2010 Grand Club Members, Walk day volunteers and committee members – without your hard work, the South Dakota Walk would not be possible.  Huge thanks to Walk Chairpersons Jennifer Miller and Kris Stewart – you ladies are FABULOUS!
