Good Morning BRIDGE BUILDERS,
Jory’s Journey Foundation Reschedules
Its Walk for Autism in Birmingham
Jory’s Journey Foundation has
postponed its inaugural Team Jory Walk for Autism and Fun Day. The event will
be 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday, May 12, at Railroad Park in
downtown Birmingham. “Walking for
Possibilities and Resources” is the theme of the event.
A forecast of inclement weather on Saturday, the
originally scheduled day of the walk, prompted the delay.
“It’s unreasonable to expect people to participate
when you’ve got thunderstorms and a 90 percent chance of rain,” said Jarrod
Sims, a cofounder of Jory’s Journey Foundation. “They’re saying we’re going to
have about an inch of rain.”
The delay takes the walk beyond April, which is
designated as Autism Awareness Month. Jarrod Sims, a cofounder of Jory’s
Journey Foundation, said that is not a problem.
“Autism Awareness Month is every month for us,” he
said. “We still are responsible for increasing autism awareness in the African
American community. That’s our responsibility.”
IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS PLEASE GIVE ME A CALL AT 205-212-8769.
THANK YOU AGAIN FOR YOUR WONDERFUL SUPPORT, AND I LOOK FORWARD TO SEEING YOU SOON.
JARROD SIMS, BOARD PRESIDENT
JORYS JOURNEY FOUNDATION
