Walk for Autism 2009

This past sunday, june 7th, had a wonderful time at the South street SeaPort for the 2009 Walk for Autism event :)

It was me in costume, rapidtrabbit as Tenderheart CareBear, el_wereturkey as handler and camera person, jdpuppy in costume, and jimwolf24 in costume. Very good crowd of people.

Early on i got a couple balloons tied to me, it worked very well for me to play and give me an excuse to spin around and stuffs so I think it also helped the kids if they were unsure of the big red platypus :P

A couple times I gave away one of my balloons, first to a little gilr and then later to a little boy who then promptly let go of it and watched it fly away.

For a couple hours we entertain the kids and then they started disappearing for the walk. Took about a halfhour break and then everyone started coming back and we entertained them for a bit longer before everything started being taken down for the day.

Very fun event and kids were really great. As Damian has said, we always have great time working with the Autism events.

Afterwards went out to a peruvian restaurant while Rapid had to head home a bit earlier and so couldnt eat with us.
