Welcome Walk YOUR Way for Autism Nova Scotia on the South Shore!
With virtual Walk events taking place across Nova Scotia, all funds stay in the community in which they are raised. This means your involvement with Walk YOUR Way makes a meaningful difference to your friends, families, neighbours, customers & coworkers in Lunenburg and Queens County!
Each year across the South Shore, more than 100 walkers and 15 teams gather to celebrate the resilience, courage and, compassion of the autism community.
This year, we will be hosting Walk YOUR Way for Autism on June 12th 2021. Our annual event will be virtual again this year! Walk, run, skip, ride your bike — do it YOUR way!
Why We Walk
Walk the Walk is an opportunity for autistic individuals, families, and caregiver networks to gather as a community and support the 14,000+ individuals on the autism spectrum across Nova Scotia. Funds raised through Walk the Walk empower Autism Nova Scotia to help individuals find gainful employment, learn crucial life skills, build support networks, and so much more. The generous support of our walkers, teams and donors makes all this possible.
