DE and PA had a successful Autism 5K Walk 2019.
The purpose of this walk was to nurture understanding and acceptance of people and families in Autism spectrum. It was a successful event. About 475 people, which included family and friends, attended the walk in Glasgow park, Delaware and about 175 people, attended the walk in Pennsylvania. It was more than double the size of 2018. Everyone had a great time.
Delaware raised $6,290 net donation (including $2,500 employee fundraiser match from TD Bank). Pennsylvania raised $1,616 net donation. We have already identified community benefit projects to put the entire $8,006 back to help the community.
Thank you all for enthusiastically supporting this event and making it a successful one.
Testimonials from Delaware Senator Nicole Poore
Last weekend, I got to combine two of my great loves: exercise and supporting children who need our help the most.
The weather also was perfect Saturday for Charity Crossing’s second annual Autism Awareness 5K Walk at Glasgow Park, which raises money for improvements to the H!gh Five Park Playground and to help economically disadvantaged Delaware families with children on the Autism spectrum.
Thank you to Charity Crossing founder Jay Muthukamatchi for organizing the event and thank you to Lt. Governor Bethany Hall-Long, New Castle County Executive Matt Meyer, New Castle County Councilmembers David L. Tackett and Dee Durham – New Castle County Council, Sen. Stephanie Hansen and Rep. Earl Jaques for sharing in the fun with us.
Testimonials from Vinod Kirpalu, President, Premiere Charities
The Autism Walk at Glasgow park on Saturday was outstanding. Charity Crossing had organized this event extremely well .. right from the volunteers directing traffic to the Event itself. The cause resonated with a lot of people as evidenced by the large group that walked!
Hats off to the entire Charity Crossing team!
