  • Directions: Interstate 85 north or south to Exit 108 (Sugarloaf Parkway). Take a left off exit ramp and go 8 miles to The Fairgrounds (located on left side of road) at 2405 Sugarloaf Parkway.

  • PLEASE NOTE:  Roads will be closed for the race between 7:30 and 8:15 so you may have some difficulty getting into the main parking lot during that time.

Chances are you know someone with Autism.  If you don’t, chances are you might be autistic 🙂  Statistically speaking Autism is widespread and broadly misunderstood.  This walk is to help connect people and families of people with autism and to raise some funds for more research.  So.. get yer butt up from the bed, grab your passport and let’s head on OTP to support the cause.. Andale!  You’ll be back in bed by noon or be able to take advantage of all that the suburbs offer (nice thrift stores mostly–oh and Brunch at Liz’s) before heading back home.
