October 27th, 2019 - Tempe Beach Park
Aurora proudly sponsored the 14th annual Autism Speaks Walk in partnership with the Southwest Autism Research & Resource Center (SARRC) where over 10,000 people came together to spread awareness and to support a nation-wide mission to fundraise and connect resources to families impacted by autism.
Since 2005, Arizona has raised 8.8 million dollars to help improve the lives of individuals with autism and their families. This year, $236,500 was raised to benefit direct support programs and resources here in Arizona. In addition to fundraising and increasing awareness, this event allowed thousands of families to connect with 19 local organizations in the community at the on-site resource fair.
