Sponsored by Autism Speaks, an advocacy and research organization, the event will be held at the Laurel Sports Complex, 203 East 8th Street, in Laurel. The 5-kilometer, non-competitive walk through Laurel will begin with registration at 1 p.m. and opening ceremonies at 2 p.m.
There is no registration fee or minimum donation to participate, but donations are encouraged.
This year’s event is the third-annual walk. The event raised $25,000 in its first year in 2011. Donations more than tripled to $90,000 raised last year, Gould said.
