Join us for the 2nd Annual Benhaven Walk for Autism!

The flat 2 Mile Walk travels from the track at North Haven Middle School and along Bailey Road. Hang around after the race for a post-race celebration! The party includes music, food, refreshments, awards ceremony & more!

Your participation supports Benhaven, a local non-profit based in North Haven, CT. Benhaven’s mission is to enable people with autism and pervasive developmental disorders to participate in community life, exercise productive control over their own lives, have meaningful relationships and associations, be gainfully employed, and experience happiness and personal satisfaction.

Those who donate or raise $200 or more earn a complimentary entry to the Benhaven Walk for Autism. Create a fundraising page during online race registration. Once you have raised $200, you will automatically be refunded your entry fee.

SPARK research Opportunity!

At the walk, you can also learn about exciting research opportunities at Yale, including SPARK , the largest genetic study of autism ever. The goal of SPARK is to speed up research and advance the understanding of autism. You can pre-register at no cost to enroll in the study assisted by a Yale autism researcher at the event. All individuals who pre-register and participate will receive a SPARK give-away.  Call this number (203) 785-7539, email sparkforautism@yale.edu or click this link to pre-register.
