A Guide To Walk Day & Quiet Zone

5K Walk For Autism Awareness Held In Queens

Sometimes the environment at an Autism Speaks Walk can become overwhelming for people with sensory sensitivities. All of our Walks allow access to a quiet space that can be used as a safe outlet if you or your loved one living with autism becomes overwhelmed. We recommend finding the quiet area of your Walk when you arrive and share its location with your team for ease of access later on in the day should it be needed.

Autism Speaks NYC Walk 2017 at Pier 17 in lower Manhattan. It was a HOT one but a great event! Our team raised over $3500!

For the second year in a row, we attended Gillen Brewer’s Annual Benefit and had a blast! We were lucky enough to sit with the head of school and the evening’s honoree, an alumni who has made major gains in his life. Always a great night!

Our team joined together to walk for Autism Speaks at Randall’s Island on September 10th, 2016. It was a hot day especially for two of our Moms-to-Be!

Co-owner and Executive Director, Dr. Peri Vella is pumped to start the walk for Autism Speaks! We were so excited to have raised over $2500.00 this year!

Bearsun Reaches The Victor Valley As He Walks From La To Nyc

OAK HILLS, Calif. A 33-year-old Los Angeles man on a mission to raise money for multiple causes by walking from Los Angeles to New York in a cartoon bear costume strolled into the Victor Valley on Saturday morning.

Carrying just two backpacks, Jessy Larios or better known as Bearsun began his journey on Monday of this week in the Little Tokyo area of downtown Los Angeles. Hoping to walk at least 15 miles he said it was taking him some time to adjust to the new suit. The goal is to try to attach the suit to your body as much as possible and right now its not doing that, so I have to fix it, he stated in an Instagram video.

After making some adjustments, Bearsun continued on his unscheduled journey walking through cities like Covina, Upland, and by the fifth day, he reached Rancho Cucamonga. By Friday afternoon, he was spotted walking through the Devore area where many motorists stopped to take photos with him.

On his Instagram video, he mentioned his funny encounter with a California Highway Patrol officer after dispatch received a call from someone thinking he was dead as he rested underneath an overpass in the Cajon Pass.

Walking in complete darkness and only a small flashlight, he carried on with his mission along Cleghorn trail where he met a couple of people off-roading and warned him about a recent mountain lion sighting.

As for the rest of todays route, he plans to take Mariposa Road along the northbound I-15 freeway into Victorville.

    Various Artists: Isolation Nation

    Isolation Nation is a multi-disciplinary film made by disabled and neurodivergent artists in response to the pandemic. The film explores the now, the before, and the imaginary future that lies ahead. Using the concept of time travel, our artist collective utilizes our lived experiences of disability and neurodivergence, in order to conceive of a more equitable, loving, and radically accessible space, both real and virtual. We destabilize notions of touch, productivity, and time in an attempt to amplify the existing bonds of disabled mutuality and leadership. Artists: Alex, Arianna, Brad, Cathy, Elizabeth, Johnny, Jordan, Mara, Maria, Max, Mike, Paris, Rayna, Uriel, Wesley.

    About the artists: Isolation Nation is a loose collection of artists who came together to explore the impact that the pandemic had asserted on our everyday experiences. We spent six weeks working in our preferred media to respond to the conditions of our current and previous lives as a means of transforming a possible future that is led by the wisdom of our organic expertise.
