THE FREEDOM TO BE HEARD AS “AUTISM SPEAKS”
On October 21, 2012 an estimated 1,000 people gathered at Nomahegan Park in Cranford New Jersey for a walk in solidarity to show support and raise money for those with autism, a debilitating disorder which affects over 1 million people and their families here in the United States alone. The Westfield Neighborhood Council had a quite the number of supporters with 72 participants who were in attendance to be involved with such a noble event.
ThreeKeysBrand.com would like to thank Ms. Nadya Lawrence and the Westfield Neighborhood Council for allowing us to get involved with such a worthy cause. We were honored to provide t-shirts that displayed a message which spoke to the very core of what the day represented. Not only does Autism Speak, but it has the Freedom To Be Heard.
Ms. Lawrence and her sister Myisha Scott who are proud members of the W.N.C did a wonderful job in getting young people involved including Brianna Bennet, Antwan Bowman, Jihad Bowman, Ife Cambell, and Jalen Gaddy just to name a few. The efforts of this exceptional organization raised approximately $1,000.00 which will help to support 5 children who have autism within the organization itself.
