Register & Team Up for Autism

Everyone knows someone with autism.

Steps of Hope is AuSM's largest annual fundraiser. Dollars raised during this important family-friendly walk support AuSM’s programs and services for individuals, families, educators, professionals and more, providing access to therapy, guidance, skills, emergency preparedness, employment information and, most importantly, hope! 

Your commitment to walk and raise funds, combined with the sponsorship of generous companies and organizations, keep AuSM working for our community.

Help us raise our goal of $75,000 for the Minnesota autism community.


It's easier than ever to Team Up for Autism!
