Second annual autism awareness walk this Saturday

NORWICH – In recognition of April as Autism Awareness Month, local residents Christina Hendrickson and her husband Robert will hold their second annual Autism Awareness Walk at 1 p.m. April 10, beginning at the High School parking lot and ending at East Park.



As the parents of two autistic boys, Hendrickson and her husband both commented that the walk, and the subsequent gathering in East Park, is extremely personal for them.

“As long as we continue to grow every year, we’re happy,” said Hendrickson, who added that approximately 125 people participated in last year’s walk. “It’s so important to us to raise awareness for children with autism, and disabilities in general, since there are not a lot of resources locally.”
