Greater Boston Walk Now for Autism Speaks

October 8th, 2010

On Sunday 26th September 2010, the Lab of Developmental Cognitive Neuroscience volunteered to join more than 17,000 participants to take part in the Greater Boston Walk for Autism Speaks. This fundraising event is held annually across the United States and Canada and it continues to be paramount in raising awareness about the prevalence of autism and generating the vital funds required for autism research. So far, we have raised over $3,000, so a HUGE shout out to everyone who has helped us so far! However, we can keep raising money until December, so if you have yet to donate and would like to offer something to the team, please visit

Also, our research wouldn’t work without you, our families. So a big thank you to all those of you who signed up to take part in our current and/or future studies. If you didn’t get a chance to sign up, but would like to, make sure you take a look at our Research page for more information.

We had a fabulous time meeting you and the face painting was a big hit! A big congratulations to those of you who raised money and completed the walk and a big thank you to those of you who volunteered and helped to make the day a fun-filled event! We can’t wait to do it all again next year!
