Steps of Hope 2017 is an amazing community experience

CampLadieswebIt was a beautiful morning to bring the Minnesota autism community together for Steps of Hope for Autism in Minnesota 2017 at Southdale Center. Hundreds of supportive families and friends filled the mall walkways as they participated in the first ever AuSM Flash Dash presented by Accra Care, gathered information from more than 70 resource tables, enjoyed healthy snacks, took pictures with a happy T-rex and Mudonna, and had tons of fun. Thank you to our emcees Mike "Muss" Mussman from K102 and AuSM champion Shannan Paul, Larry Moody as our friendly T-rex, The Royal Sisterhood princesses, Anime Twin Cities superheroes, all of our sponsors, volunteers, the AuSM board, AuSM staff, and fantastic participants. You made Steps of Hope 2017 AMAZING!
