Thousands walk for autism awareness

Thousands of people pounded the pavement in White Plains Sunday for the 14th annual Autism Speaks Walk.

Participants walked the 1.5-mile lap around the wooded New York Presbyterian Westchester Hospital campus.

All of the money raised will benefit autism research and treatment.

Organizers says that $700,000 has been raised so far.

A big part of the day is also providing services for families with loved ones who have been diagnosed with autism, from guide dog services, to speech therapy and legal aid.
