Strides for Autism Walk at Greenville Technical College

  • Posted on April 1, 2008
The South Carolina Autism Society’s annual Strides for Autism walk will be held on Saturday, April 12 at Greenville Technical College. The event raises awareness about autism – a spectrum of neurological disorders that afflicts up to 1.5 million Americans – and funds that pay for family support, education, advocacy and research.

“A walk allows families to participate together,” Barbara MacWilliam, director of development, said in a statement. “And just as autism crosses all socio-economic lines, so does our ability to help this cause – anyone can walk, get a team together, recruit personal supporters and sponsors and make a difference.”

The non-profit, which opened a Greenville office last year, also has a virtual walk at

Sponsors of this year’s event include BMW, Lexington Medical Center, UPS, South Carolina Early Autism Project, SpeechWorks, and Allegra Print & Imaging of Columbia.
