OF NEBRASKA PUZZLE WALKS!

         

The Autism Society of Nebraska is proud to announce three locations for the 2013 Autism Society Puzzle Walk!  
Join us in Grand Island, Omaha or North Platte.

Choose the city you would like to participate in - just click on the box and you will be "walked" through the registration process!

Can't attend the actual walk? No worries! Register as a Virtual Walker and join us in supporting the cause! All funds raised by the Autism Society stay in Nebraska where we can directly impact the lives of our local community!

Registration is easier than ever with our new registration site! Take a few moments and create your own personal fundraising page and help us spread the word!

Join  the Omaha Support Group at Pump It Up

for a fantastic night of bouncing!

Free admission to everyone who pre-registers for the Autism Puzzle Walk AND creates and customizes a personal fundraising page!

Are you not registered yet?

Don’t have a fundraising page?

Do computers intimidate you?

No problem!  We’ll help you get it done! We will have computers and helpers to walk you through the registration process!

Bring money for your walk registration fees —$12 adult/ $8 18 and under—and bounce for free!

Plus you'll be able to bypass some of the registration process at the walk!

Not registering for the walk?  You can still come and bounce at $5 a child!
