Walk YOUR Way for Autism - Stepping in the Right Direction for Autism


Welcome to Walk the Walk for Autism Nova Scotia in Sydney!

With NINE Walk the Walk events taking place across Nova Scotia, all funds raised stay in the community in which they are raised. This means your involvement with Walk the Walk makes a meaningful difference to your customers, neighbours, friends, and families.

Each year in the Cape Breton Region, more than 200 walkers and 60 teams gather to celebrate the resilience, courage, and compassion of the autism community.

This year’s Walk the Walk for Autism Nova Scotia in Sydney will take place at Open Hearth Park, 109 Ferry Street.

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.
