The Summit Center Autism Walk is a community-wide effort to raise funds in support of Summit’s programs 
and services in Western New York.  The Summit Center services children, young adults, and families affected by autism.  You are invited to enjoy a four-mile or half- mile family-friendly walk with festivities and fun.  It enables people like you to be a part of something truly life- changing for families affected by autism in your community.

The Summit Center Autism Walk promotes autism 
awareness and acceptance in the Western New York community.  Bring your whole family out to walk in honor of your child, student, neighbor, or friend.

Information About the Walk
We just wanted to make sure you had all of the information you need for Walk Day! • Check-in begins at 8 a.m. and the Walk begins at 10 a.m.
  • There will be a donation drop-off tent if you would like to drop off any donations on Walk Day.
  • We will have many visitors on site and in the building for use of restroom only. We do have port-potties rented as well. Once guests are done using the restroom they should exit the building. In the event of inclement weather on walk day we will not open the building for guests. The walk is rain or shine so please bring your umbrella and dress to be outside. We thank you for your cooperation in this matter.
  • Parking is available at the Amherst Police Station/Audubon Library (located at 500 John James Audubon Parkway). Shuttles will be provided ever ten minutes! • Participants can register the day of the Walk with a registration fee of $50
  • .Children under 18 do not need a bib or a lunch ticket. They will still receive a lunch. Thanks so much for all of your support and we will see on Walk Day!
Packet Pickup

Below is the information regarding Packet Pickup Day for our Autism Walk.

Packet pickup day will run from 8:00 - 5:30 on Friday, April 20th. Pick up your walker packet at The Summit Center's location on 150 Stahl Road in Getzville.

Included in your walker packet are:
• A bib 
• Lunch ticket
• Walk tee/cap (if you’ve reached incentive).

If you registered as a virtual walker, you will not receive a bib and lunch ticket, as we are not counting you as a physical walker. As a virtual walker, if you qualify for fundraising incentives you are welcome to come on April 20 and pick up your incentive. (All artwork for incentives over $500 will be produced post-walk).

If you cannot pick up your packet on April 20th, packets will be available on event day for pick-up.

Spring Break Challenge
Happy spring to all of our wonderful Autism Walk supporters!

To kick off fundraising for the month of April, we are excited to announce the Spring Break Challenge. The Spring Break Challenge Sponsor this year is Hodgson Russ. From Friday, March 30th to Friday, April 13th, Hodgson Russ will match $1 (up to $1,500) to The Summit Center Autism Walk for every dollar donated. Make sure to fundraise this week so that we can take advantage of their generous matching!

To sweeten the deal, we're throwing in an iPad. That's right, you can be eligible to win a 32GB Wi-Fi iPad. For every $100 that you raise during this two week time period, your name will be automatically entered into a drawing to win. For example, if you fundraise $100 by April 13th, your name will be entered into the drawing once. If you fundraise more than $200, your name will be entered in twice, and so on. Everyone will be automatically entered in to win and the winner will be announced on Tuesday, April 17th.

Good luck and happy fundraising!
