Virtual Walk for Autism

Virtual Walk for Autism 2021


Dear Friends,

This past year has been challenging for all of us, but our community has shown great resilience. Here at The Kelberman Center we have stayed positive, strong and proactive. Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, The Kelberman Center has continued to provide services to children, adults and their families either through in-person or telehealth appointments. We have continued to work together as a team to implement and provide creative, interactive and virtual access across a broad spectrum of activities.

We are heavily dependent on our Walk For Autism and NOW MORE THAN EVER we need your support. As our Walk for Autism will be virtual again in 2021, it is generous donors like you that make the difference.  Thank you for supporting the same wonderful cause that means the world to so many families within our community.  Please donate below or form a team TODAY! 

For any questions about the Walk or information on how you can raise money for The Kelberman Center, please reach out to Kelly Carinci, Chief Development Officer at
