“I usually am hesitant to bring my boys to public places like the Zoo, however we all ended up having a blast! We got up close and personal with some of the Jacksonville Jaguars, meeting and interacting with families, and spending the day at the Zoo. Our entire family is looking forward to this year's Zoo Walk.”
—Sheila, mother of two with Autism
The HEAL Foundation is excited about the upcoming HEAL Zoo Walk for Autism on Sunday, April 30 at 8:00 a.m. This walk raises funds to assist individuals and families with Autism in our local area, while bringing families and our Autism community together on one day for a special purpose.
