Our friends at the Shorefront Y, the Kings Bay Y and the Marks JCH of Bensonhurst are putting together their second annual Walk for Autism event, slated for April 22. In advance of the event, they’ve asked us to help get the word out to local about how they can get signed up to help this great cause.

You can register at the Shorefront Y’s website, or call (718) 646-1444 ext. 406.

The walk benefits Southern Brooklyn families who cannot afford to pay for special needs programs as the government continues to slash away at free programs. So by participating, you’re helping out neighbors who need it the most.

The walk itself is 1.2 miles along the Coney Island Boardwalk, beginning at the Aquarium. Here’s the flier:
