The 14th annual Miami Walk Now for Autism Speaks fundraising and awareness event will take place on April 6, 2014 at JC Bermudez Park in Doral. All event proceeds will support Autism Speaksâ€™ work, both locally and nationally, to increase awareness about the growing autism health crisis, fund innovative autism research and family services, and advocate for the needs of individuals with autism and their families in Miami-Dade County and beyond.Â Autism spectrum disorder is now diagnosed in 1 in every 88 children, including 1 in 54 boys, making it the fastest-growing serious developmental disability in the U.S.Â The Walk Now for Autism Speaks events are the signature fundraising events for Autism Speaks, drawing hundreds of thousands of participants in 103 cities across the U.S. and Canada to support autism research, awareness and advocacy.Â Each Walk Now for Autism Speaks event is unique, offering a safe and fun day for families impacted by autism. The day includes a two-mile Walk and Community Resource fair with educational sources, therapists, schools, recreational organizations, and creative child-friendly activities â€“ a true â€œone-stop-shopâ€ for families affected by autism.Â In addition to its national science and advocacy work, Autism Speaks has made a significant impact in the Miami area. The organization has provided funding to innovative local service providers, including through its Family Services Community Grant program.
