Step Up for Autism Sunday, June 22, along the Riverwalk.

The Step Up for Autism Walk and Fun Run again will take place along the beautiful Riverwalk in downtown Naperville. Registration opens at 8:30AM and the Walk kicks-off at 9:30AM.

Started 6 years ago as a way to raise awareness about autism spectrum disorders, this event continues to attract spirited teams in matching colorful t-shirts, drawing crowds of 2,000 people.

Geared toward families of all ages, youngsters will enjoy a special kids area with lots of activities and food. Folks also will find tons of music, thanks to generous sponsors at 95.9 The River and their very own Danielle Tufano and The River Road Crew.

From start to finish, familiar faces and costumed characters are added attractions every year.
