                    • The subject of the post from over two weeks ago was Ottawa, Ontario, Canada being home to an annual Walk for Autism Speaks Canada. Autism Speaks is North America's leading Autism science and advocacy organisation.​

                      To the southeast, Westchester County in New York State is also home to an annual Walk for Autism Speaks...
                      [Westchester County]’s Susan Murray remembers the early years of a golf fundraiser she and her husband, Kevin, started [to raise funds for] autism research and education. After 16 years, the Autism Speaks [golf fundraiser, held in Westchester County, is held] without a hitch, but that was not the case early on.

                      “There were blackouts ...all over Westchester County that first year,’’ said Murray, who is currently working with her husband and volunteers to put plans together for the 16th annual event [to be held on] Monday, June 16. “Despite our inexperience and weather that first day, it still turned out to be very successful and we raised [a significant amount.] We truly had no idea how to run an event like this but ...we were [thankful to be] able to bring in the numbers we did that day and have an amazing time doing it. It was the start of something great.”

                      The tournament is now one of the most successful charity golf events in the region and has raised [a significant amount] during its run. Originally started before Autism Speaks became a national organization, the proceeds from early tournaments were distributed to other groups that supported autism awareness and research.

                      “I think every year we’re amazed,’’ said Murray, whose 21-year-old son, Owen, has autism. “I’ve definitely seen a big difference in awareness. When we first started, not many people knew or understood what autism was. Through the golf tournament, we’ve been able to not only generate funds for much needed research, but to also raise awareness...”

                      The Murrays created the golf tournament after Owen was diagnosed with autism at 18 months. Kevin played frequently in other charity golf tournaments.

                      “We thought it was time to focus on something that’s affecting [those closest to us],’’ Susan said. “We told the autism groups at the time that we’d love to fundraise for them, but I don’t think they really knew what we meant. We were told by one of the autism organizations that the funds we raised that first year was the most raised in one singular event for autism. As proud and happy as I was, Kevin and I knew that we needed to do more...”

                      Murray said the event “...was embraced by the community from the onset.” And [that] the need to raise funds is vital.

                      The day begins at 10[am] with golfer registration. ...the [actual] tournament begins at noon...

                      The tournament is played at ...the site of many United States Golf Association championships and other top tier tournaments. Celebrities who have played in past years include ...Boomer Esiason, Chris O’Donnell, ...Molly Simms, [and] John Starks...

                      [Many] volunteers [assist in the running of] the tournament, and most of them have been doing so for years. The event has evolved throughout its history, but the personal touch and fun atmosphere are tournament staples.

                      “For a lot of people that come, it's like a reunion, Murray said. “...And every year we see new faces which is wonderful as well. As far as the volunteers, most of the women that come to help out don’t even have children on the autism spectrum, and that truly impresses me. They come year after year because they care and because they want to [part of the fundraiser effort.] I am so incredibly touched by this. It has been amazing to be a part of this.”

                              In the Khan household, every little milestone is worth celebrating, like their 10-year-old son Azeem, who has autism, learning how to answer yes or no questions.

                              "Now he aggressively tells us no with an attitude and I just love that he does that to us," said Fauzia Khan, Azeem's mother. "That’s a huge jump [for him] to even answer questions."

                              Azeem is mostly non-verbal and communicates using a device or with a few words. Fauzia says the progress he's made since being diagnosed with autism around the age of 18 months is in part due to good schools and good therapists.

                              "I think all of that put together and then obviously [those individuals closest to him]," she said.

                              "When you have the understanding of your peers and people around you, it just makes it a lot easier and that really helped," said Asim Khan, Azeem's father.

                              Another big milestone happened this summer when the family flew to California to visit Fauzia's parents. [In the past,] flying was very stressful for Azeem. This time, she made him a social storybook of their journey.

                              "I took pictures of the airport and our layover and wherever we were going, and he did amazing," Fauzia said. "It was a game changer for me for sure. It felt like a huge weight off my shoulder and now I can go visit family and not have to worry about him."

                              And the Khan family will celebrate another year of Azeem making progress and strides when they gather at Towson University on Sunday October 30 for the Autism Speaks walk.

                              "The walk is a huge thing for us, we look forward to it every single year," said Fauzia. She said they make t-shirts, have sold baked goods to raise money and are usually one of the top fundraising teams at the walk.

                              They credit Autism Speaks for guiding them in the right direction and connecting them to therapists for Azeem.

                              "There are resources out there and Autism Speaks definitely sets you up on that path for that," said Asim.

                              "I try to invite parents of newly diagnosed children to come and join so they can meet other people, register for the walk and get one resource, Autism Speaks, under them so they have somewhere to go," Fauzia said.

                              The Khans admit that when they first got Azeem's autism diagnosis, they were scared and in denial. But they put one foot in front of the other to give him the best life possible. Now, they are encouraging everyone put their best foot forward at the walk to support their son and Autism Speaks.

                              "Its just a great space to come out and have a good time with other families that are basically in the same situation that you are in. Not a bad situation, a good situation," said Fauzia.

                              The Autism Speaks walk is Sunday October 30 at the Johnny Unitas Stadium at Towson University. Registration is at 9:30 a.m. and the walk begins at 11 a.m...

                                        To the southwest, the GoodLife Kids Foundation is a London, Ontario-Canada-based nonprofit that attempts to get kids with various challenges to experience the benefits of fitness. This includes children with Autism Spectrum Disorders in Southwestern Ontario...
                                        ...GoodLife Kids Foundation, a cornerstone of GoodLife's community investment work, is dedicated to helping kids and youth with intellectual disabilities and/or autism thrive through physical activity and fitness. With many community based in-person programs on hold, the foundation is determined to help youth with special needs be active at home.

                                        MOVE by GoodLife Kids is an adapted virtual physical activity and fitness program for youth with [various challenges including] autism, ages 12 – 21 years. MOVE is offered 3 times per week and led by coaches with expertise in delivering fitness to individuals with special needs.

                                        GoodLife Kids Foundation introduced MOVE in 2020 to eliminate some of the barriers to participation that youth with special needs face – such as higher cost for adapted programming, lack of available programs to suit individual needs, inaccessible environments... MOVE is being offered at no cost to families, and groups are kept small to ensure each youth gets a personalized and unique experience that works for them.

                                        Being active is an important part of every child’s healthy development. It helps kids physically – improving their strength, coordination, and flexibility – as well as socially and emotionally. Physical activity can provide opportunities to learn skills and traits like teamwork, empathy, and sharing.

                                        Kids and youth with special needs should have the chance to build healthy, active lives – just like everyone else.
