    Autism Speaks Walk Returns To Orangeville This Weekend

    Autism Speaks Canada Walk. Virtual Walk Day across Canada

    The annual Autism Speaks Canada Walk is returning to Orangeville after the event was held as a car parade in 2021 due to the pandemic.

    The fun filled event is in its sixth year and takes place this Sunday at Fendley Park from 10 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. The walk is roughly three kilometres long and is open for everyone to enjoy and support, not just individuals with a personal connection to autism.

    You dont have to have an autism connection, said Karrie Daponte, walk organizer. People assume they shouldnt come because they dont have connection but thats what this event is for the walk is all about learning to accept them . Not just include them, but accept them.

    For the event, Fendley Park will feature 13 fun mascots like Marshall from Paw Patrol and Elmo, race car drivers with their vehicles, several vendors, food trucks, emergency vehicle tours, prize draws, live music, and free food/refreshments.

    The park will also feature a childrens area with face painting, Music Together Orangeville running actives, and karate demonstrations.

    Dance Ability Movement, which teaches dance to individuals who are neurodiverse, will be at the event for a performance.

    TSN Towing and charitable motorcycle group, Qwest Riders, who participated in the local Walk on Wheels Car Parade for Autism Speaks Canada in 2021 will be at the event as well.

    A lot of parents dont feel comfortable taking the kids up in the community but this is somewhere where everybody can go, she noted.
