On Sunday, April 19th, 11 Bobâ€™s RedÂ MillÂ employees along withÂ their friends and family (making a total of 34 walkers) joined together to support the Autism Society of Oregon by participating in the ASO walk-a-thon. The walk-a-thon took place atÂ OaksÂ Parkhere inÂ Portland,Â OregonÂ on a beautiful, sunny day. Over 4,000 people walked to showÂ their support for the ASO and raise money for their programs. The ASO has many beneficial programs that assist families living with autism, including everything fromÂ support groups for parents, Respite Care Programs to aid caregivers, and assistance with therapy and school programs for children on the autism spectrum.
Bobâ€™s Red Mill is proud to support the ASO and Autism Speaks and bring more awareness to autism spectrum disorder. As a team, we raised $1271 for their programs. If you are interested inÂ helping support ASO or Autism Speaks, there are many ways to get involved. Visit the websites below for more information. We are sponsoring a walk inÂ PortlandÂ with Autism Speaks in September. Watch for ways that you can get involved this fall!
