On Saturday, my team and I walked for the eighth year in a row to raise money and awareness for autism. We had 82 people turn out to walk in our kelly green shirts this year and I'm SO thankful to each and every one. It was a fun group!

We ended up having a GORGEOUS day to walk. Usually this time of year, we're still sweating profusely, but we started out walking at 7am and it was in the 70s! Yay! Our goal this year was to raise $7,000 and we exceeded it, raising $7,702 -- the 2nd highest amount of any team!

Thank you to each and every one of you who donated and helped us to do something great in the fight to find answers for the 1 in 68 children affected by autism!!! The proceeds we raised will go toward the local ASU research program. The ASU research program is doing some exciting studies that are revealing practical treatments that are being implemented to change childrens' lives NOW.

If you didn't get a chance to participate this year -- it's not too late! Even though our team reached our fundraising goal, the overall fundraising goal for the event is $50,000 short. You can still donate online here! And plan ahead to join us next year!

Here are some photos from walk day! My nephews Noah and Elijah are 14 and 12 and they both have autism. As our team name states -- we LOVE them and are so proud to walk in their honor! Noah can be seen in the photos below pushing Elijah in a cart -- his favorite thing about the walk.
