Autism awareness and acceptance in Antigua and Barbuda received another boost this month as the Rotary Club of Antigua Sundown joined with Team RUBIS and other supporters for the upcoming “Walk the Walk” for Autism.
The walk takes place on April 22nd, 2023, a day that organisers hope will bring recognition, education, and hope to the countless families impacted by this neurological disorder.
Reflecting on RUBIS’ contribution, Raphaelene Jackson, Sales Manager RUBIS, said the company was delighted to partner with Rotary Sundown to support this worthwhile venture to increase awareness and acceptance of the autism disorder across Antigua.
Walk for Autism is Antigua’s largest autism fundraising event, dedicated to supporting the needs of people with autism and their families.
Rotary Sundown President, Nicree Mills-Jno Baptiste, said the goal of the Rotary Club of Antigua Sundown is to change the future for all who struggle with Autism Spectrum Disorders.
“We are dedicated to funding training, screenings, assessments, and teaching aids, in addition to raising public awareness about autism and its effects on individuals, families, and society; bringing hope to all who deal with the hardships of this disorder; and committed to fundraising funds necessary to support these goals.”
