Autism walk in Purchase to draw thousands for research, awareness
June 10, 2007

Thousands of walkers - including individuals with autism, their families and friends - are gathering this morning to raise money for autism research and to increase awareness.

The 6th annual Westchester/Fairfield Walk Now for Autism began at 9:30am at Manhattanville College in Purchase.

All proceeds from the event benefit Autism Speaks, the nation's leading autism advocacy organization.

According to organizers, last year's Westchester/Fairfield walk event drew more than 9,000 walkers and raised nearly $1 million.
