CREATE A TEAM: Teams are such an exciting part of the CVASA Autism Walk. Team pictures and stories are among the most beautiful things you will ever find on the internet, and their spirit on Walk day is an inspiration. Teams can make t-shirts together, bring special signs and banners, spread the word and collect pledges. Note: If bringing signs/banners please be mindful of the runners/walkers and yield to the other participants. Please do not block the way of the returning runners on the race course. *Award & Recognition for top fundraising Team!*
