SYLVANIA, OHIO - The Autism Society of Northwest Ohio will hold its second annual Lace It, Face It Walk sponsored by JBC & Associates, on Saturday, September 6, 2014 at Olander Park, 6930 Sylvania Avenue, in Sylvania. LACE IT is for the walk; FACE IT is for Autism Awareness. Registration begins at 8 am, and entrance to the park will be free for participants that morning. Participants should park near the shelter and in the Tam-O-Shanter lot next door. Walkers will start off at 9 am from the Autism Society’s location at the Open Air Shelter #2 and will cover the park’s 1.1 mile loop. Walkers may walk the loop as many times as they like.  Please note that Olander does not allow dogs.

 

Walkers who register by August 15 are guaranteed a Walk t-shirt and “goodie bag”. Although registrations will be accepted right up until the event starts, only a limited number of shirts will be available on walk day.

 

The registration fee is $20 per adult walker. Children 10 and under may walk for free without a walk t-shirt, or for $10 with a t-shirt. Participants are encouraged to raise pledges in honor of loved ones with autism and to assemble walking teams. Walkers who raise $45 in pledges (over and above their registration fee) will receive a pair of puzzle piece shoelaces specially made for the walk.

 

All donations raised stay right here in northwest Ohio to help us provide services to all affected by autism.
