On Sunday May 22nd, Atlanta will come together to raise awareness for Autism and celebrate all in our Atlanta community with Autism. This years event will take place at The Georgia World Congress Center.
Walk Now for Autism Speaks is a fun-filled, family friendly event and is our single most powerful force to fund vital research that will lead us to the answers we need. Experience the power of thousands united by a single cause by joining Walk Now for Autism Speaks. Autism is the fastest-growing serious developmental disorder in the U.S. – we need more volunteers to join our fight. Whether this is your first walk or the 10th, take the first step and register today. You will not only raise funds, but you will become a part of a fun and supportive family-focused community.
Every 15 minutes, another family receives the devastating news that their child has an autism spectrum disorder. Help us change that! Start fundraising today. Whether you strive to join our new “Grand Club” (walkers that raise $1,000 or more) or sell lemonade to boost your total or create your own unique event, you become a part of the solution! Don’t wait another minute – start a corporate, school or family team today!
We look forward to seeing you at the event!
I had the great pleasure of sitting down with Kathleen Leard, who is in the top fundraising spot with team “Davis’s Dream Team”. Kathleen and I met through my good friend Amanda Wilson about 3 years ago during the Walk Now For Autism. My daughter Aleena and I walked with their team. Kathleen is a remarkable woman. She is a wife, a mother and an advocate for autism awareness. We have a great interview with her coming the week of the walk, so stay tuned for that!
As some of you know, Amanda Wilson is a writer for The Backstage Beat. She is also a mother of two boys on the autism spectrum. Please join with our family, Amanda’s family, Kathleen’s family and thousands of others on May 22nd.

Eddie Owen Presents an evening of Song from the Lyrical Genius of Levi Lowrey, Fester Hagood and Brother Shine White!
If there is any part of you that wants to do this workshop, do it.
Even if you’ve never written a song.
Even if you have a notebook full of half-finished songs that you would never want anyone to see.
Even if you think you’re already really awesome at songwriting and know everything there is to know about it.
The thing is, anyone can learn. Anyone can get better. You will be amazed and delighted at what you’re able to come up with when you’ve got guidance, encouragement, accountability, and very specific assignments.
