Walk YOUR Way for Autism - Stepping in the Right Direction for Autism


Welcome to Walk the Walk for Autism Nova Scotia in Sydney!

Walk Your Way for Autism NS is an all day virtual event on Saturday June 12th.

Each year in the Cape Breton Region, more than 200 walkers and 60 teams would gather to celebrate the resilience, courage, and compassion of our autism community. This year, we are inviting our teams back again to make a donation and participate in 'WALK YOUR WAY' For Autism.

Our Walk YOUR Way teams have so much fun reaching their goals – Walk, Run, Skip, Hike - Your team chooses how they will walk and we'll celebrate it on our Website and Facebook pages.

Your generous donation will support programs and services for individuals on the Autism Spectrum and their families. You will be supporting social programs for youth and young adults and other much-needed resources in our community.

Make a donation or register as an individual walker or as a team. Donations may be made online or collected and returned in person at our Autism Resource Centre. Individuals or teams are welcomed to share your team images to our facebook page or by email at cbregion@autismns.ca

Why We Walk

Walk the Walk is an opportunity for autistic individuals, families, and caregiver networks to come together (this year virtually) as a community and support the 14,000+ individuals on the autism spectrum across Nova Scotia. Funds raised through Walk the Walk empower Autism Nova Scotia to help individuals find gainful employment, learn crucial life skills, build support networks, and so much more. The generous support of our walkers, teams and donors makes all this possible.
