Behavior Frontiers’ Los Angeles area offices were proud, once again, to sponsor the Los Angeles Autism Speaks Walk! The Pasadena Rose Bowl lit up blue in a big way with thousands of walkers and participants all eager to show their support for the autism community and to raise money for a worthy cause. Organizers anticipated more than 13,000 walkers and friends, the largest in the event’s history.
Our Behavior Frontiers team was involved in every aspect of the day, from running a very busy booth at the resource fair, to hosting a super-fun sand necklace activity with the kiddos, to proudly representing the Behavior Frontiers community on the Walk course.
Our San Gabriel Valley office went above and beyond – they formed a team and raised $2,000, four times more than their original goal!
Clinical Director Joy Wong: “The day was a great success! We had a good turnout of volunteers to help with the booth, and so many visitors having fun making the sand art necklaces. We made a rainbow sand bottle from the sand that spilled onto the table and that ended up being a popular "color". When we ran out of necklaces, Sr. Behavior Therapist Audra Mercado used her creativity and created sensory boxes out of the sand which were a big hit with the kids!”
