Take a few steps in Dundas for Autism Speaks Canada
Dundas walk ambassador Liam Blanche hopes the community will join him June 24 as he takes steps to raise money for Autism Speaks Canada.
The second annual three-kilometre walk takes place at the Dundas Driving Park. Registration is at 9 a.m.
Liam was diagnosed with autism just before his third birthday.
In the seven years since, dad Dave Blanche said his son — a St. Augustine school student — has met his challenges and blown past any expectation his family cold have imagined.
“Liam is a great example of how a child on the autism spectrum can achieve great things with personalized support,” said Blanche.
“Speech therapy gave Liam his voice; behavioural therapy gave him direction.”
