One in 88,  that's how many children have some type of autistic disorder.

For dozens of people in Harrison County, that statistic motivates them to raise awareness, all for a good cause.

Those people came out to the Clarksburg City Park in Nutter Fort on Saturday, for the second annual Walk for Autism.

The park was decorated in blue, with many different schools and organizations helping to raise awareness.

Organizers said the event is great way to bring the community together, and raise awareness for autism.

"It helps bring the community together, it helps with "friend raising," and fundraising, and it helps raise awareness," said Bradley Ford, of Autism Society of West Virginia.

Officials said they raised over $35,000 for this year's walk.
