Walk for Autism - New Braunfels

In Comal and surrounding counties, over 30,000 individuals are living with autism. That means that you or someone you know has a close connection to a child or individual who lives with autism and whose daily lives are challenged by this diagnosis.

New Braunfels had their first Walk for Autism in 2019 and this event has become a critical part of increasing services provided to families raising children with Autism. The incredible involvement of NBISD, CISD, the McKenna Center, and our other community partners has allowed for Any Baby Can-NB to provide services and supports for families raising individuals on the spectrum. All proceeds stay local to fund critical, one-of-a-kind programs at Any Baby Can - New Braunfels.
