The people of Nantucket Island are known for their generosity and warmth of spirit, and never do they show it more clearly than each year when hundreds of people walk to fund vital research for autism. This year, Nantucket Walk Now for Autism Speaks takes place on Saturday, August 18th at 9:30 a.m.(registration at 8:30 a.m.), beginning at Jetties Beach. With a distance of only 1.5 miles, it’s something I hope we all can try to do.
Every 11 minutes, another family receives the devastating news that their child has an autism spectrum disorder. The Walk, founded by islanders Bob and Suzanne Wright, is one way to help change the future for all who struggle with the challenge of autism.
Come join me, Frank and our three Bichons, Ellie, Tuffy and G.G.! Learn more at www.walknowforautismspeaks.org/nantucket, or call 646-843-6675.
