Thank you for championing the Autism Puzzle Walk & 5K! Your support helps the Autism Society of Nebraska work toward creating a better future for so many Nebraska citizens living with autism!
The Autism Puzzle Walk is only one day of the year but because of to the community support that you helped rally around the Nebraska autism community we are better equipped to provide a lifeline for so many individuals and families throughout the ENTIRE year.
We have sorted through hundreds of photos and created quite a tribute for this special day! Please come visit our photo gallery at our web site and experience the fun again!
