Autism Delaware held its annual walk at Cape Henlopen Park April 20. More than 600 walkers participated in the three-mile walk around the state park. Prior to the walk there were plenty of activities for families, along with food from local restaurants.

Many of the walkers formed up teams prior to the event like Team Devon from throughout Delmarva. Shown are (l-r) Sierra, Debby and Tom Shockley; Maria and Ryan O’Bara; Ashley and Austin Adams; Lauren Todd and Bernice Parentegu.
