2016 WALKATHON FOR AUTISM AND SPECIAL NEEDS

The Answer Inc's 2016 Walkathon for Autism and Special Needs is around the corner and we are going to need your help.  Our annual walkathon is by far our biggest fundraising event, but it is also our greatest opportunity to meet with community members far and wide, who help us say I AM HERE to the parents of Autistic and Special Needs Children everywhere. 

With statewide budget cuts hitting many organizations, the fundraising component of this year's walkathon is more important than ever.  With your help we can make up for some of our losses and avoid cutting programs any more than we have to.

I pray that you take a second to browse some of "What We Do" and that you will find yourself encouraged to come out and join us on Saturday, May 7th, 2016 --- as we continue in our commitment to being The Best Autism Awareness and Support Agency in the Chicagoland Area, delivering on our promise to the families that we serve.
