Hope Network Bridge Walk for Autism

Thu April 25, 2024 Grand Rapids, MI 49503 US


Join Hope Network and more than 1,000 community members on Thursday, April 25, 2024, as we walk for inclusiveness. For neurodiversity. For the belief that everyone, everywhere, deserves a chance to be included.

The Hope Network Bridge Walk for Autism is more than an event for the autism community. It’s a rally for inclusiveness—for community members, businesses, and local leaders alike to come together for a hope-filled evening. 

But wait, there’s more! 

In celebration of Autism Acceptance Month, Hope Network and the Grand Rapids Public Museum are teaming up to host a complimentary sensory-friendly night for autistic children and their families. 

This special Grand Rapids Public Museum event will include free Museum admission and the museum staff will adapt the sounds, lighting, and activities within their current exhibits to create a low-sensory experience.

Registration is required, and spots are limited for the Sensory Night following the Bridge Walk, so be sure to register early!

Receive Your Shirt!

Each Bridge Walk participant will receive a t-shirt. Registration deadline to guarantee you and your family receive your preferred shirt size is Thursday, April 4 at 10 a.m.
