Carbone Athletics at The Fitness Mill and Kelberman have teamed up for the third year in a row for the 2023 Walk for Autism! The Fitness Mill, located on Oriskany Street in Utica, will be the Lead Sponsor and location for the Walk for Autism, which will take place at the Fitness Mill on Saturday, April 29 as well as in a virtual format throughout the month of April. 

Kelberman’s 2023 Walk for Autism encourages friends, family members, school groups, businesses, etc. to raise funds for autism programs and services at Kelberman. Participants can either join us for the LIVE event at The Fitness Mill on Saturday, April 29, or they can register to walk virtually, choosing their own day in April and distance to walk. All proceeds from the 2023 Walk for Autism will help provide support for children, adults and families with autism in our community.  

Registration for the Walk for Autism will be open on February 14, 2023, as Kelberman kicks off its “Give From Your Heart” Annual Support Campaign, comprised of Autism Acceptance Month/Community Puzzle Piece Campaign in April, Staff and Board Campaigns and the Walk for Autism. “Give From Your Heart” is a call to action to the community to help Kelberman build a base of funding and support for the life changing programs and services available for children and adults each year.  Register for the Walk or find out more about how you or your business can become involved in activities throughout the month of April by visiting and clicking on the Walk for Autism button on the top of the homepage. 

“We are so thankful for the generous support of The Fitness Mill for our Walk for Autism,” commented Maria Cappoletti, Kelberman CEO. “Our Walk for Autism has always been about connecting communities and families, raising funds and advocating for acceptance for children and adults with autism right here in the Mohawk Valley. Stepping in as Lead Sponsor of our Walk again this year strengthens our already thriving relationship with The Fitness Mill, reinforcing the important relationship between health, wellness and meaningful involvement for the people and families we support.” 

Fitness Mill Owner Alex Carbone states, “This Fitness Mill is beyond proud and excited to be the Lead Walk for Autism sponsor again for this year. We cannot think of a better partnership and we look forward to hosting the 2023 Walk for Autism again at our site here in Utica.  As a part of our sponsorship, we will be giving everyone who participates in the Walk for Autism, either in person here on April 29th or virtually, a free one-month membership. We look forward to the Walk for Autism and to helping families and friends come together to promote autism acceptance.”
