The Central Coast Autism Spectrum Center hosted its 11th annual Walk for Autism and Resource Fair at San Luis Obispo's Mission Plaza on Sunday, April 24.

The walk was a symbolic stroll through downtown San Luis Obispo that brought awareness and acceptance to those with autism in the community.

Vendor booths, child-friendly activities, information, service providers, games, and food were all present at the event.

"It's really important for us to be able to spread awareness and this is a place where we can be and we won't be judged," Mehgan Brady, one of the mothers attending the event said.

The Central Coast Autism Spectrum Center is an all-volunteer organization and the walk is its main fundraiser.

So far, $12,800 has been raised, with an overall goal of $50,000.
