The Autism Speaks Walk is the world’s largest fundraising event to enhance the lives of people with autism today and accelerate a spectrum of solutions for tomorrow. According to the CDC, 1 in 68 children in the US is diagnosed with autism. In fact, one of our team members, Lory Gonzalez, has an 8 year old son with Autism. Izaak was diagnosed at age 2 and although he is nonverbal, he is able to communicate with the family by utilizing their tablet. With the support of his therapist, Izaak’s speech has been progressing and they have faith that he will be able to communicate verbally with them one day. Izaak is a very bright and loving boy with a big heart. He loves electronics, rockets, trains and music and is a joy to his family.
Jallad Insurance is proud to help fundraise and participate in Autism Speaks’ mission to provide support for research and medical discovery, spread access to information and resources, and fund local services for the Autism Community.
