Description: Grab some friends, get some pledges, and join the Autism Society of Northwest Ohio for our Second Annual Lace It, Face It Walk sponsored by JBC & Associates, on Saturday, September 6, 2014 at Olander Park in Sylvania.

LACE IT is for the walk; FACE IT is for Autism Awareness.

Register by August 15 to be GUARANTEED a Walk t-shirt and “goodie bag”. Although registrations will be accepted right up until the event starts, only a limited number of shirts will be available on walk day.

The registration fee is $20 per adult walker. Children 10 and under may walk for free without a walk t-shirt, or for $10 with a t-shirt. Participants are encouraged to raise pledges in honor of loved ones with autism and to assemble walking teams. Walkers who raise $45 in pledges (over and above their registration fee) will receive a pair of puzzle piece shoelaces specially made for the walk.

Registration begins at 8 am on the day of the event, and you can get into the park free that morning. Park near the shelter and in the Tam-O-Shanter lot next door. Walkers will start off at 9 am from the Autism Society’s location at the Open Air Shelter #2 and will cover the park’s 1.1 mile loop. Walkers may walk the loop as many times as they like. Please note that Olander does not allow dogs.

All donations raised stay right here in northwest Ohio to help us provide services to all affected by autism.

The Autism Society of Northwest Ohio is an affiliate of the oldest and largest grassroots autism organization in the country, the Autism Society of America. We provide support, education, and advocacy for individuals, parents, family members, and professionals affected by autism across the lifespan and the entire spectrum across 12 counties in Northwest Ohio. Our chapter relies heavily on donations and fundraisers in order order to provide these services, so events like the Lace It, Face It Walk are very important to our existence.
