Yocha Dehe Urges Community to Join Fight Against Autism

Team Autism Tewe is proud to be among the local groups leading the “Walk Now for Autism Speaks” on Sunday October 6th in West Sacramento. The West Sacramento event is part of a nationwide effort by Autism Speaks to raise needed funds for autism research. It is also designed to raise awareness about the growing prevalence of autism. Every 11 minutes, another family learns their child has an autism spectrum disorder.

Team Autism Tewe is made up of tribal members of the Yocha Dehe Wintun Nation and is a long-time supporter of Autism Speaks. The team takes part annually in local efforts to inform more and more individuals about the challenges of autism and the need for research. Team Autism Tewe and the Yocha Dehe Wintun Nation encourage their neighbors to learn more and get involved in the fight against autism. This Sunday’s “Walk Now for Autism Speaks” is a great place to start. Events begin at 9 AM at Raley Field.
