The 2012 Oklahoma City Autism Walk

· No Comments

There are many different awareness walks and conventions that take place around Oklahoma City throughout the year.  This May 5th, is the PieceWalk and 5k marathon put on by the good people at www.autismoklahoma.org.

The reason that this walk is so different from many of the others is that it is local.  This group is one that works to make sure that all of the money they raise is directly given to help families with autistic families in Oklahoma, and one hundred percent of the money raised stays in Oklahoma to benefit families here.  In fact, the walks for the last two years have helped to provide funding to programs that have benefitted families all throughout the state.  There have been close to $87,500 worth of grants awarded in the last two years alone.
