Spreading Awareness and Fundraising for Programs for Autism Pictou County

Hello everyone,

I am asking for your help. Please join us for the walk on Saturday, June 22nd to help support Jessica and the many others who are trying to spread awareness and fundraise to help our children and families through the many challenges Autism presents. Autism Pictou County is a chapter of Autism Nova Scotia. We are a parent support group who help to create opportunities for people living with Autism. Our children have the opportunity to participate in a one to one swim instruction program as well as an art program designed for children with special needs to explore a variety of mediums. We also fund Project Lifesaver Bracelets, help parents attend conferences. For the 2nd year we are happy to be offering a Music Therapy Program. We host monthly events for families who have a loved one living with ASD, a Christmas Party, Annual family getaway to Moncton, and many social opportunities for our children who don't often create these opportunities on their own. All of these things would not be possible without the generous donations from people like you. Please give to this great cause!! Thank you in advance for your support!

Why I'm Walking

I am walking for my daughter Jessica and all others I know who have ASD. Jessica is an active 14 year old girl who has taught me many things.  She is happy, loving and has showed me you can do anything if you have the motivations and determination! It is important that we continue our work to spread awareness. The more aware people are the less these people are judged! It is my wish that all persons with a disability will be acknowledged, appreciated and live life to their fullest potential! Without this annual fundraiser none of the programs we have would be possible.
