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

Port Hawkesbury


Welcome to Walk YOUR Way for Autism Nova Scotia in the Quad Counties!

With Walk events taking place across Nova Scotia, all funds raised stay in the community in which they are raised. This means your involvement with Walk YOUR Way makes a meaningful difference to your community.

Each year in the Quad Counties, more than 100 walkers and 20 teams gather to celebrate the resilience, courage, and compassion of the autism community.

This year, we will be hosting Walk YOUR Way for Autism on September 24th.  We are excited to announce we will be able to gather for our event this year. Our Walk event will take place at the Port Hawkesbury Playground and Recreation Fields from 11am-3pm. Our Walk Route will be the Tamarac Trail in the beautiful Community Trails. So please come and Walk, run, skip, ride your bike — do it YOUR way!

Why We Walk

Walk YOUR Way is an opportunity for autistic individuals, families, and caregiver networks to gather VIRTUALLY as a community and support the 14,000+ individuals on the Autism Spectrum across Nova Scotia. Funds raised through Walk YOUR Way 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.

We are in this TOGETHER!
