Challenge #4
Who knew that we had so many Picassos in our group?! We received some outstanding submissions for the Week #3 masterpiece challenge. Check out these amazing pieces of art from Jenn M., Amy J., and Laura R. (Visit our Facebook group for the full photos!).

It is hard to believe we’re already on our last week of challenges. But that just means we are so close to Walk Week (June 1 – June 6) and we are so excited!

For Challenge #4, we want you to complete a random act of kindness! We hope that your kindness will inspire others to make someone’s day a little brighter.

Will you pay for someone’s coffee in the drive thru line? Bake cookies for your neighbors? Collect towels and blankets for an animal shelter? Please tell us all about the joy you spread in The Summit Center’s 2020 Virtual Autism Walk Facebook group (be sure to use the hashtag #54ForSummit!)

Not on Facebook? Don't worry! You can send your submission to autismwalk@thesummitcenter.org and we’ll post it in the group for everyone.

As always, thank you all for your support. Your enthusiasm and dedication make such a difference.
