The Third Annual Autism Awareness Walk was a bigger success than ever with over 200 people estimated to have participated throughout the afternoon and raising over $3,000 for local autism trainings. Some folks walked in the gymnasium and others took to the Skyview track where they enjoyed a beautiful spring day under sunny skies. There were different activities set up in the gym for children to do as well as arts & craft booths in the commons area. Lots of information was available for people to take and share about Autism. "We're making real progress when it comes to awareness of Autism and the turn out here today is very encouraging for us," said event organizer Tonja Updike, with the Autism Society of Alaska, "Education is the key and schools and infant learning now are learning more about it and realizing the Autism is a spectrum and not all autistic children bang their heads against the wall or have the same symptoms that the movie Rain Man made known," she added.
