On Sunday, May 5th, Spectrum360 held its 7th annual Walk for a Lifetime event in Verona Park. We had nearly 700 registered participants for this special event! With the help of generous sponsors, amazing teams, and dedicated volunteers, we raised nearly $150,000 and counting!
Despite the unpredictable weather, we had a great turnout with so many participants still eager to walk to raise awareness of autism and fund programs at Spectrum360. Participants had the chance to visit vendor tables, enjoy fresh baked goods from our own CulinaryAcademy360, and enter our raffle for a chance to win prizes. Some other activities included face painting, games, and balloon animals.
Each year, the funds raised from this event go directly to multiple initiatives at Spectrum360 such as after-school programs, weekend respite experiences for students and adults, Girls Scout and Boy Scout programs, CulinaryAcademy360, and FilmAcademy360. These innovative programs encourage individuals to develop and enhance skills that they can use at Spectrum360 and beyond. The successes they experience in these programs translate into more successes in the community.
This event would not be possible without the support of our Spectrum360 community.
Special thanks to our Presenting Sponsor, Xandr; our Gold Sponsor, The Conti Group; our Platinum Sponsor, BD; and our two Silver Sponsors, GalaxE Solutions and Western Pest Services.
