JOINING HANDS FOR AUTISM – American Press
Families and friends whose lives have been impacted by autism are invited to join together April 14 and participate in the annual Joining Hands for Autism Awareness Walk.
The one mile walk will begin at 9 a.m. Saturday, with registration beginning at 7 a.m., at St. Louis Catholic High School located at 1620 Bank St. in Lake Charles.
This year’s event will be the third in a row for Will Malone and his mother, Kat Landry, and his first year to have his very own team participate in the walk.
“We look forward to this event every year and this year we have a lot of family and friends joining us, so it’s going to be a really fun time,” Landry stated.
Landry recalled the moment when her son received his diagnosis that placed him on the autism spectrum shortly after he was 5 years old.
