Jillian Tinkel is the Lead Therapist for Autism Meets Optimism in Manhattan, and is working hard to organize the 2nd annual Walk for Recovery taking place this Sunday, April 15 from 1-5pm in City Park.
Autism Meet Optimism is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, founded by William R. and Brandy A. Porter, in honor of their son Will.
The purpose of our walk will be to raise funds for local community activities for children and their families affected by autism here in Manhattan.
However the primary goal is to raise enough funds to start a therapy center in Manhattan for children with Autism. Autism Meet Optimism along with the help of many friends and family want to provide our community with a facility that will allow our children, teens and adults with autism to lead happy fulfilling lives. One that will provide quality research based methods of teaching with trained professionals, a place where they can learn and grow.
We hope you can all make it to the 2nd Annual Walk for Recovery! The event will take place in the Manhattan City Park, Sunday April 15, 2012 from 1-5pm!
