ST. LOUIS, Mo. (KMOV.com) -- KMOV is a proud sponsor of the 2017 Autism Speaks Walk, Saturday, October 14 at the Upper Muny Lot.

Autism is the fastest growing serious developmental disability in the nation, affecting 1 in 68 children.  An autism case is diagnosed every 11 minutes and you do not have to search far to find a family you know that has been affected by autism.  The Autism Speaks Walk is a day to come together as a community to help raise funds to further the understanding  of autism, environmental risks and potential treatments.

Festivities begin at 8:30 on October 14.  This one stop shop for families with autism includes entertainment, a Resource Fair and an interactive Kids Zone.

The walk will begin at 10am.
