Desde el año 2005, Autism Speaks y SARRC se han asociado para recaudar fondos para la investigación del autismo y los programas en curso en Arizona.

En los últimos 14 años, se han recaudado más de $ 9 millones de dólares a través de la caminata de Autism Speaks en asociación con SARRC en Arizona para mejorar la calidad de vida de las personas con autismo y sus familias. La caminata en Arizona, es una de las más de 60 que se realizan en todo el país, atrae a una de las multitudes más grandes y representa uno de los eventos más populares de Autism Speaks. La mitad de todos los ingresos recaudados financian servicios y recursos directos a través de SARRC, mientras que la otra mitad ayuda a la misión de Autism Speaks para mejorar las vidas de hoy al mismo tiempo que acelera un espectro de soluciones para el futuro.
