Warwick, R.I. – On Sunday April 26 the 13th annual Imagine Walk and Family Fun Day for Autism took place in Goddard Park.

The event had been organized by The Autism Project.

It is thought that eight thousand walkers participated in the event, having traveled from all across the region.

The 2014 Imagine Walk raised $200,000, and it is hoped that this year’s event will help to fund training courses as well as after-school clubs and summer camps.

Executive Director Joanne Quinn told that they have many programmes planned at the moment that need to be done, including those aimed at the aging population,

“We just want more support so we can do more programs and support more people.”

At present the group is focusing on adults with autism, and how these individuals can gain employment and play an active role within society.

Ms Quinn told that they have seen an increase in the number of inquiries at The Autism Project from those families who care for an adult with autism, regarding concerns about their loved one’s career and how they can live independently. “Many members of The Autism Project have family members who are autistic.”
