Local Walk Ambassador: Micah
Micah is 9 years old and the youngest of 3 children. Micah was diagnosed when he was 3. He was nonverbal at the time. He is considered high functioning now, is fully verbal and does well at school. Micah has many interests including his love for trains, drawing very detailed pictures, playing video games and making movies on his iPad with his sisters and friends. He loves to have play dates with his 2 closest friends and going to his grandparents on Thursdays after school which he has done since preschool. He also has quite the sense of humor.
We definitely have learned to celebrate his accomplishments no matter how large or small they may be. And to work hard through trials. He had worked very hard to get where he is today. This is our 4th walk in Saskatoon and we are committed to raising awareness and helping other families with children on the spectrum along the way.
The Walk includes fun activities, performers and snacks, before and after the Walk. Arrive early to give yourself lots of time to visit and enjoy the event with your family and friends!
Upon arrival at your Walk, please proceed to Registration to submit your cash and cheque donations with your pledge form(s). Ensure that your pledge form is clearly labeled with your name and team name (if part of a team) to ensure that you and your team receive recognition for all donations collected.
Be sure to visit the Resource Fair area to learn more about the services and programs that are available in your community. Resource Fairs are a part of our signature Walks. Please contact your Regional Walk Manager for more information or to inquire about a Resource Fair at your Walk.
