Event description

Description

The Yellow Door hosts the 7th Annual Chico Walks for Autism. This event includes a 3-mile walk, music, complimentary BBQ from Chico Elks Lodge #423 AND in an event first, a family carnival and vendor fair hosted in partnership with Little Red Hen!

This is your opportunity to show your support for individuals with autism in our community and their families. This is our 7th annual event and in the past six years, we have raised over $90,000.

Last year The Yellow Door sponsored the following events from the money generated by the walk:

  • The Yellow Door Cares—a donation account to Families and Individuals with ASD in need of support with housing, medical bills, food and those other “life emergencies” that our community frequently deals with. Since March 2016 the YDC has helped over 26 families.

  • Northern California Autism Symposium. The Yellow Door sponsored John Elder Robison (author of Look Me in the Eye) as the keynote speaker.

  • Durham Parks and Recreation Autism Summer Swim Program




FAQ's:

What if I can't afford the registration cost?

That's ok! come participate anyway! A sense of community is the most important part and lots of people just come on down.

What are my transportation/parking options for getting to and from the event?

Parking goes quickly in the area surrounding the park. We recommend you arrive early.

What can I bring to the event?

Anything that you need to make your day special. Families with kids of all abilities come. Some families bring wagons, some sound canceling headphones. We ask to please leave non-service animals at home. That being said, it is a public park and we cannot enforce this.

How can I contact the organizer with any questions?
