The 3rd annual Autism Hero Walk will raise funds for crucial programming in the state of Michigan. Autism Alliance of Michigan is leading Michigan on the path to becoming a top 5 state in which to raise a child with autism.
The Walk begins with an energetic opening ceremony followed by a 1-mile walk through the Detroit Zoo. Immediately following the walk, attendees are encouraged to enjoy a day at the Zoo and post-walk activities at the events pavilion.
We are very excited to premier our brand new video “Help. Hope. Answers Today.” Please take a minute to watch and learn about the work of Autism Alliance of Michigan. And then please share this video with your friends so we can reach as many families affected by autism as possible and provide them with the help, the hope and the answers they need today.
The theme of the 6th annual Michigan Shines for Autism Gala was “Expect the Unexpected: An evening celebrating the unexpected gifts around us.” From 8 year old MC Keith Tryson to a menu of gourmet sliders and tater-tots (Keith’s favorite) to Lieutenant Governor Brian Calley tickling the ivories and singing with the Aim High Flyers, this was one evening, we won’t forget. Thank you to all who attended, donated and supported us in our most successful Gala to date!
