The Young Troopers
Since 2011 The Young Troopers (aka Alison's 40th Birthday Party) has raised over $60,000 for Autism Speaks Canada by walking with Walk Now for Autism Speaks Canada in Montreal.
While some of us are only Young at Heart, others really are “Young Troopers” and we are walking for them.
Autism Speaks Canada is part of the world’s largest autism science and advocacy organization dedicated to funding research into the causes, preventions, treatments and cure for autism.
By supporting Walk Now for Autism Speaks Canada you are helping change the future for people in the Canadian autism community.
Did you know that 1 in 68 children is diagnosed with autism? Did you know that autism is more common than childhood cancer, juvenile diabetes and paediatric aids combined? Did you know that in the last 7 years, the prevalence of autism has increased 78%? Did you know that there are tens of millions of adults living with autism spectrum disorder? These numbers are truly staggering.
Please consider joining our team and/or sponsoring our walkers. Please support Autism Speaks Canada today.
