Somerset Berkley Regional High School is hosting a community wide walk to promote Autism awareness and acceptance. The Walk the Walk event (Stepping in the Right Direction Autism) is a two mile open walk around the beautiful new Somerset Berkley Regional High School track in which participants can join in on the track any time.
The entire community is welcome and encouraged to bring your families and friends.
The event will also feature informational booths along with interactivities for participants. All the proceeds of this event will go directly to the students at Somerset’s elementary schools, high school, and junior high.
The money will be used to fund individual projects by the teachers made to strengthen the learning experiences of the students. This could include special sensory equipment, field trips, software, supplies, or any other resources needed.
All of this will take place during the week ofWorld Autism Awareness Day,which takes place on April 2nd.
The superintendent is asking both students and staff along with others in the community to wear blue on April 6th in honor of Autism and the upcoming event the next day. That week will also feature numerous other events at the other schools in Somerset.
