Seneca Participates in Autism Speaks South Jersey Walk

Students, staff and parents from Seneca High School participated in the Autism Speaks South Jersey Walk at Bishops Gate Corporate Center in Mount Laurel on June 1, 2019.  This year, Seneca surpassed its donation goal and raised $1,358.80.


Seneca teachers Mrs. Sandy Langan and Mrs. Beth Zerone co-coordinated Seneca's involvement in the Autism Speaks South Jersey Walk.  Students from Seneca’s Buddies, Psychology, and Community Service Clubs volunteered at the registration and refreshment tents.


Seneca teacher Mrs. Sandy Langan said of the event, “The Autism Walk is a great way for our Seneca students to raise awareness and donations to support a wonderful organization, Autism Speaks.”


Seneca junior Brooke Parry volunteered at the event and said, “I participated in the Autism Speaks walk because the cause is near and dear to my heart.  I babysit kids who have autism and to be able to raise money for a cause that’s so meaningful to me is important.”


The Autism Speaks Walk is the world’s largest autism fundraising event dedicated to improving the lives of people with autism.  In addition to awareness, this annual event raises funds for autism research and services.
