Close to 200 people participated in the annual Autism Awareness Walk-a-thon, held this past weekend at the Richland County Fairgrounds.

Autism Awareness Walk-a-thon founder Debbie Melching was on hand and brought with her a very special guest.

Melching says individuals and groups pay $10 to walk or take in pledges from supporters. Information tables, food, arts and crafts, raffles and other activities are all part of the event.

Efforts raise awareness and funds for autism, a disorder of neural development characterized by impaired social interaction and communication and by restricted and repetitive behavior.
