OSWEGO, NY – The Family Fun Walk for Autism will take place Saturday from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Leighton School and Wilber track and field.
Participants can join in an organized three-mile walk around the track.
Youngsters can enjoy a variety of activities provided by the agency sponsors.
There will be balloon animals, face painting, inflatables and DJ entertainment.
Prizes will be awarded for those who wish to help fundraise for the many things the Oswego County Autism Task Force supports, such as scholarships for graduating seniors, mini grants that are awarded to agencies that provide activities for folks on the spectrum and workshops for families and professionals.
There will also be prizes for the most money raised by an individual, team and child.
T-shirts will be available, while supplies last, at the event for $12 each.
Those who raise $25 will earn a water bottle. Those who raise $50 will receive a travel mug.
New this year will be a vendor and silent auction area.
There will be many items to bid on.
Also new this year, the event will feature a quieter and separate section where you can get away from all the excitement for a while.
The mission of the task force is to provide information that enhances the lives of those touched by the Autism Disorder Spectrum in the community.
The event will take place rain or shine…..or snow!
