I would walk 100 miles for autism

My cousin, Chris, 13, is autistic. He cannot talk and needs constant care. I have an idea for people to come together to help others who are in need because of autism. I think that it would be great if people had more fundraisers, such as one each year with at least 100 people, and the people would walk 100 miles. The more people who finish, the better.

Each person would pay $10 if they finish. It might not be a lot, but every dollar counts. Even kids could participate. This event would be called “The 100 Mile Walk to Help Autism.” It would help kids and families who have someone with autism in their family. I am up for the challenge — are you?
