Welcome to Walk For A Difference!

Thank you for your commitment to those with autism, their families, and their teachers, and welcome to our premiere fundraising event of the year! Not only does POAC train thousands of NJ police officers and first responders every year on how to keep our children with autism safe, but POAC is also the largest provider of FREE autism recreation, training, and education in the entire state. The needs of children with autism and their families are growing. POAC’s goal is to continue to meet these needs in real ways every day. Hope for a brighter future is growing because of your participation in this walk.
