This is from their website:
"WALK NOW is a 5K (3.1 mile) family walk and autism community resource fair heightening public awareness and raising money to fund autism research. The resource fair includes educational resources, therapists, schools, recreational organizations and creative child-friendly activities. Proceeds from WALK NOW support Cure Autism Now’s mission to find the causes, effective treatments, prevention and a cure for autism. Over the course of 2005, nationwide WALK NOW events will raise approximately $5 million."
Any and all donations are GREATLY appreciated! Even $1.00 can make a difference. We have 4 team members so far and are working on forming our team.

I am also a member of the Atlanta Cleanup which is a volunteer organization a friend and I started which works to improve the city. Participating in WalkNow is our first event. Our second even is in July and we are going downtown to pickup trash. I'm not asking for donations for this group, I'm just trying to spread the word. You can see our page here:
