Walk for Autism-Charleston is a not for profit organization which raises funds to help many special children struggling with autism. Our primary goal is to fund scholarships for these families to help pay for the treatment and intervention of autism through behavioral and relational development programs. The Walk is held during the month of April to celebrate Autism Awareness month. 

It is a family friendly walk through historic Hampton Park, with refreshments, live music, jump castles, silent auction, autism merchandise, haircuts by Great Clips, and therapy dogs. Sponsors will be there with information about autism and activities for the entire family. 

Registration begins at 9:00 a.m. and the walk begins at 10:00 a.m. Come join us to learn more about autism and help the growing number of children challenged by the disorder. 


“Usually, taking a child diagnosed with autism out in public is no walk in the park…. Now imagine a city park, filled with hundreds and hundreds of children on the autism spectrum, gathered together. It can only be described with one word… beautiful.” ~ Sarena James
