2010 Cleveland Walk Now for Autism Speaks

On Sunday, September 26th, 6000 walkers attended the 4th annual Cleveland Walk Now for Autism Speaks. The Walk has raised $295,000 with more donations coming in!

We are so thankful for all of our team captains, walkers, sponsors, service providers, committee members and volunteers for making this day so special.

We had a lot of great entertainment!! The Cleveland Cavaliers Scream Team pumped up the crowd before opening ceremonies by dancing on the stage. Alex Hale, an adult with autism, sang the National Anthem that brought tears to our eyes. 8 year old Max Moses, a young boy with autism, took the stage with his spiked hair and leather jacket and played his electric guitar for the crowd before the start of the Walk. As always, Mentor Top 25 danced for us all day long.

Our Grand Club members enjoyed breakfast prepared by Chef Brian Doyle on Walk day. All Grand Club members who raise more than $1,000 will have the chance to win dinner for two in their home prepared by Chef Doyle. Contest ends December 31st.

Let’s go Cleveland! Let’s reach our goal of $400,000! If you raise $100 by December 31st, you can purchase a Cleveland Cavaliers ticket and get one free for the 2011 season!
