Autism now affects one out of every 68 children in the United States.  Autism Awareness Month is celebrated throughout April and the Kelberman Center will host its annual Walk for Autism on Saturday April 9 in Boonville (V.F.W.) and Mohawk Valley (SUNY Polytechnic Institute) on Saturday, April 16 in Oneida (Oneida High School) and in Cooperstown (Glimmerglass State Park) and on Saturday April 30 at Hamilton College (Sadove Terrace).  The Boonville and Cooperstown events will feature both a Walk and Run.  All walks and the Cooperstown Run begin at 10:30am with registration beginning at 9:00am. The Boonville Run begins at 10:00am.

The Walk for Autism is the initiative of a group of parents heightening autism awareness in local communities and raising needed funds that will remain in Central New York. Family and friends are encouraged to join as parents, concerned citizens and advocates take steps towards increased awareness and services for those with autism spectrum disorder. Sites will feature music, refreshments, activities, prizes, and the opportunity to socialize with those united by this common cause.
