A benefit was held Saturday morning on the campus of Waterville Baptist Church for “Walk for Autism Speaks,” one of 70 such events held across the nation.
Church members Chris and Heidi Humphries’ 4-year-old boy Brodie was diagnosed with autism last year.
Members participated by preparing a pancake breakfast, hosting a silent auction for baked and canned goods, and a car wash. Children played on inflatable slides and trampolines while parents enjoyed music played by Christian radio station J-103.
On Sept. 11 members of Waterville will join with thousands of others in Nashville for “Walk for Autism Now Speaks” event.
Monies raised will be used for autism awareness and research. For more information, contact the church office at 472-5582.
