San Antonio "Autism Walk In The Park"

We had an amazing time at our first ever "Autism Walk In The Park" on Saturday in San Antonio!  With over 500 people registered, we raised almost $10,000! The funds will be used in the San Antonio autism community.  A huge thank you to volunteer Lisa Owens for chairing the event, and Irma Canfield for all her work! Also thank you to Amanda McKinnis Photography and Laura Logan, Illustrator. Thanks also to all of our volunteers! We couldn't have done it without you and we loved seeing the San Antonio pride and spirit! What a great day!
