Walk the CPHS track to raise money for the “We-Can Retreat”. This is a plan to allocate funds for respite care to parents or caregivers living daily with autism, so they can have some desperately needed time off.
Registration: $10 (pre-registration) or $15 at the gate. The walk begins at 10:30am with registration opening at 9:30am. It takes place on a completely fenced and accessible track, where you’ll also find a bouncy castle, entertainment, and a kids’ craft area with face painting, bubbles, crafts, service vehicles, fun activities and more. A BBQ and refreshment stall will also be on site.
The goal of the walk is to see children with autism come together with the community, to educate, raise awareness, and promote visibility and understanding of both the challenges and opportunities that are expressed through the unique autistic experience. This is also a day to celebrate these special individuals in an event that is designed around them, for them and because of them. Everyone is invited to attend, and organizers are looking forward to this great day!
For registration packages, please visit the Owl Café (135 Bridge St., CP) or Lanark Community Programs.
Hosted by the Lanark Autism Support Group.
