With nearly 4,000 participants on a beautiful, spring Saturday, Summit’s 14th Annual Walk for Autism Awareness, exceeded its $300,000 goal raising more than $311,000.
“We are extremely appreciative of the outpouring of support we received from our families, staff, sponsors, and community friends,” said Stephen R. Anderson, Summit CEO. “These funds are essential in helping us bridge the gap between state funding and our actual expenses and will allow us to continue to provide top-notch services to individuals with autism and their families.” The actual total raised will likely exceed $311,000 due to additional donations made on the Walk website – summitwalk.org – and received by mail.
The Walk, held on Saturday, April 27, was presented by Paddock Chevrolet. Other key sponsors included M&T Bank, The Bonadio Group, Blue Cross/Blue Shield, and Tops Friendly Markets.
