'Walk A Mile In Our Shoes' Brings Awareness to Autism

Posted: Updated:
MORGANTOWN -

"Walk A Mile In Our Shoes" is a walk to benefit the Intensive Autism Services Delivery Clinic at the Center for Excellence in Disabilities which is part of WVU Health Care. This facility is one of only a few in West Virginia.

This clinic provides treatment for young children with autism and trains WVU students to provide treatment.

"It's something I'm thankful for when I wake up in the morning and I know that Hope as a place where she can go, where she's going to get the therapy she needs," said Sarah Crichigno, Hope's mother. "And I think about families that don't have it, and I would just love to see clinics like this bring up all over the state and the country because this has been a lifesaver for us."

To "Walk a Mile" in their shoes only required a donation. Scarlet Bazzle, 42, participated in the event.

She raised $250 for the Clinic.
