Event Info:

The Summit Center Autism Walk is a family-friendly event with 91% of every dollar raised directly benefiting those we serve. The event is centered around a 4-mile walk from Summit (150 Stahl Road) along the Amherst Bike Path, and back to Summit or a 0.5-mile walk around Summit's grounds. The post-walk picnic will feature food, beverages, children's activities, and live entertainment. Please join us for this uplifting and fun-filled day.
