CLEAR LAKE, Iowa – For the first time in north Iowa, there will be an Autism awareness walk.

Autism speaks of Iowa and the Opportunity Village Children’s Autism Center are hosting the walk.

Coordinators say the main goal of the walk is to create awareness but they will be accepting donations for the two organizations.

“Everywhere you go, you’re impacted by Autism you might not personally be impacted by maybe it’s your next door neighbor or maybe it’s the child that you see at church and I think one of the biggest reasons for this is just to create awareness to the community,” says Christina Maulsby, a Mother of two Autistic children.

Registration for the walk is at 8:30 on Saturday and the walk starts at 9 at Clear Lake’s City Park.
