ENTERPRISE, Ala. (WDHN) — Many walked to raise awareness for those with Autism Saturday morning.

The first Wiregrass Autism Walk took place around the track of Bates Memorial Stadium in Enterprise.

The walk is for those who may have a loved one with autism to come out and have a good time by walking laps, playing games, enjoying jump houses, and throwing water balloons.

The walk also serves as a fundraiser — donations go to the autism society hub of Alabama.

For Sharon Loman, this hits home for her as her grandson was diagnosed with autism at 5 years old.

“It makes me feel good to know I’m not alone and there is help out there,” She said. “There are booths out here offering great information for when they get older.”

Vendors were glad to be involved and even donate to the cause.
