What is Rudy’s Playground?
Safety and Awareness is a large part of Any Baby Can’s Walk for Autism. Abby Garcia, mother of Rudy Alejos, a 6 year old boy with autism who perished in a fire in August of 2011, has supported the Walk for Autism for years. Abby provided her personal experience and support to add fire safety awareness that is crucial for children with different abilities.
In 2012, Rudy’s Playground was dedicated in the memory of Rudy Alejos during the opening ceremonies of the 8th Annual Walk for Autism at the AT&T Center. Rudy’s playground is an activity area where all children and youth of different abilities can participate and have fun. Activities can include adapted fitness, movement, games, fire and safety demonstrations, and much more! Fun and adapted activities are provided by local therapy providers, schools, civic groups and more.
Help us keep Rudy’s memory alive. Join us for Any Baby Can’s 14th Annual Walk for Autism on April 21, 2018!
