Just a Lil Walk
On May 12th, 2018 (7:45 registration, 9:00 a.m. 5K, 9:15 a.m. 3K (i think)) we will walk for Autism Connection of PA. We walk for Lily. We walk in memory of Leslie. We walk in memory of Leslie's mother Pat, who passed in January. We walk for kids and adults on the spectrum.
A lot of people are scared about where benefits and supports for autistic people are heading. What will be available over the next four years? What will be defunded? How will this new administration treat our growing tribe? Want to do something about it? Walk with us. Supporting this charity will support that threatened community.
Enough gloom and doom...
A couple quick points:
1) The thing that asks you your shirt size when you register as a walker? That's not my thing. That's Highmark's thing. People who donate X amount ($50? Not sure) automagically get a free tshirt. FROM HIGHMARK. THAT is who sees your shirt size. So...while it seems like I should know your size when you register...I don't. So please let me know ASAP so I can order enough shirts in all the right sizes.
2) I'm going to try to stay more on top of the walk this year. I apologize if you get burnout before the walk even starts, but I really half-assed it last year, and this year I want to put my whole entire ass into it. So...I'm going to try to send out monthly updates. That's not bad, right? It's February as I'm writing this, so 4 updates.
Let's get walkin'! Can't make it to the walk? Register as a virtual walker, or just donate!
