GOLDEN VALLEY, Minn. - One in 88 children are diagnosed with autism. It's the fastest growing developmental disorder in recent years.
The Autism Speaks Walk at the Mall of America is aimed at raising funds and awareness for the disorder, and you can join in.
Autism awareness is also the platform of the current Miss Minnesota America, Rebecca Yeh. Yeh will attend the walk on Saturday, October 12.
Yeh joined KARE 11 Sunrise to talk about the event and her work with Autism awareness.
