9th Annual Walk for a Difference

Every year we gather to show that when we walk together, “We can make a Difference”.  The money collected from this event funds many of the events UNYAA offers as well as the camps and school time break activities people have come to rely on.  

Our mission is to make a real difference in the lives of children affected by Autism and other childhood developmental disabilities who reside in our community. The continuing goal of UNYAA is to provide the necessary awareness, education, resources, and positive community inclusion to the many families affected by developmental disabilities.

This years walk will be held on May 15th at the Harry J. Betar Jr. Recreational Park in Moreau.  We will have lots of fun activities for the kids, a huge raffle and a great silent auction.  Lunch is provide for the walk participants.

We have such great volunteers who help put this event on. They provide raffle and auction items, donate their time to help put together raffle items, and they hang poster to help promote the event.   The amount of people who help us each year raising money by creating a team and each member on the team can help collect donations to make this event year after year a huge success! It is truly amazing what a great group of people we have surrounding us.
