CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) -

Walk Now for Autism Speaks is a fun-filled, family  friendly event that kicks off on Sunday, September 22 at 10 a.m. at Voinovich Park located at the 9th Street Pier.

Organizers of the event says that it's more than just a walk event; it's an opportunity to truly celebrate your loved ones touched by autism and let your guard down, relax, and enjoy a family outing.   Event leaders say that if there is a meltdown or transitional issue, don't worry about what everyone is thinking, because we all "get it."

Studies say that every 11 minutes, another family receives the devastating news that their child has an autism spectrum disorder.
