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


Thank you for showing your support and commitment to the autistic community by taking part in Walk YOUR Way 2024. The event would have not been possible without the generosity of our incredible community, Walk participants, volunteers, Presenting Sponsor: Carson Exports, Provincial Sponsor: Farnell Packaging, and contributing partners.

It was incredible coming together in NINE different locations across the province in-person and virtually to celebrate the autistic community and to continue to build understanding, acceptance and inclusion for Autistic individuals and the people who love them. 

Please see below for key dates and deadlines for fundraising:

  • June 14, 2024 - Deadline for online donations and funds to be brought in to Chapters to be counted towards team and individual goals.
  • June 25, 2024 - Top Fundraisers announced, stay tuned to your e-mails and social! Winners will be contacted directly.

Stay tuned for details on Walk 2025. We hope to see you there!
