GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) — Hope Network is hosting a walk across the Blue Bridge in downtown Grand Rapids on Wednesday to raise awareness for autism.
The bridge walk will be led by Lieutenant Governor Calley starting at 5 p.m. at the Front Avenue entrance to the Blue Bridge. The event is free and open to the public. The first 500 attendees will receive a Hope Network t-shirt and bracelet.
“For the first time here in West Michigan we have a large number of kids receiving really critical treatments that help them have a much better chance at a really great future,” said Dr. Mira Krishnan, a clinical Neuropsychologist and the director of the Hope Network Center for Autism.
The walk kicks off Autism Awareness month. People can also help families in need of funding for treatment by going to www.hopenetwork.org/donate and selecting Autism Scholarship Fund.
