15th Annual Autism Speaks Walk in partnership with SARRC

The 15th Annual Autism Speaks Walk in partnership with SARRC has got a brand-new look! To ensure the safety of our community, SARRC and Autism Speaks are making a few changes to the 2020 Walk event. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we are transforming our traditional day-of-event into a new, fun, and engaging way so our participants may safely participate this year.

Saturday, Oct. 31 Event Highlights

Walk on Wheels! SARRC and Autism Speaks will host Walk on Wheels: an organized, festive, and safely distanced car parade at the Mesa Convention Center to celebrate your team's efforts! To meet traffic regulations and ensure the safety of all our participants, assigned time slots will be available from 9 a.m. to noon per car. Timeslot selections will be sent out directly after you register for the Walk. 

Bring the Walk to your neighborhood! For those who can't attend our Walk on Wheels event, join us virtually in the comfort of your home! At 9 a.m., we will host our Opening Ceremonies in a live-stream format, which can be followed by a 1.54-mile walk in your own neighborhood! We will even supply you with a start line banner and pom-poms to share with your neighbors to cheer you on!

Registration is now open

Registration is free and it's never too early to get started. Participants are encouraged to build a Walk team comprised of family, friends, and loved ones then set a goal and begin fundraising! Register on the Arizona Walk website to track your team's progress and get access to resources, fundraising tools, and more. Register here » 

Important reminder

We look forward to sharing more updates as they are available. To ensure you are receiving the most current information, please be sure to register your team.
