Autism Oklahoma PieceWalk & 5K

April is Autism Awareness Month. Every year, AutismOklahoma.org hosts the PieceWalk & 5K. This is the largest single autism awareness event held in Oklahoma. This year’s walk/run is on May 4 at the Chickasaw Bricktown Ballpark. This is a day of joy and celebration for all who love someone with autism. It includes a Resource Fair filled with vendors providing information, samples and fun.

As many of you may remember, the AutismOklahoma PieceWalk & 5k holds a special place in our very own Kerry Lingerfelt Blackburn's heart. Her son, JJ, is a highly functioning autistic 10 year old boy. Every year, Kerry and JJ participate in the PieceWalk. Of course JJ loves superheroes and it is only fitting that his team name is Captain JJ and the Autism Avengers!

Please support a good cause and consider donating to Captain JJ's team and participating in the PieceWalk for autism awareness. COALA and Kerry would love for you to join JJ’s team! Click on the link to learn more, donate and to sign up: https://piecewalk.org/team/captain-jj-the-autism-avengers/.
