OREFIELD, April 13, 2010 – Nearly 100 KidsPeace employees, families, clients
and friends will make up the “KidsPeace Kares Team” in the Walk Now for
Autism Speaks event this
Saturday in Allentown’s Lehigh Parkway.
KidsPeace has participated with a team since the
walk was launched in the Lehigh Valley three years ago. Individuals are securing pledges to
walk in the event and the team raised more than $300 toward the cause during a
recent hoagie sale.
KidsPeace provides community autism services in
the Lehigh Valley and also conducts “Sarah Smiles,” a summer day camp for
Lehigh Valley children with autism.
“Our employees are very excited about
participating,” said Paige Keeter, Program Manager, Autism Community Services
for KidsPeace, and team director.
“ Walking with some of our clients and their families will make our
efforts especially meaningful.” Keeter added that this year’s team will also be
joined by several on-air personalities from WLEV 100.7 FM.
