OKLAHOMA CITY—An annual event that helps Oklahoma families who have been affected by Autism took to the streets of Bricktown Saturday.

Thousands of people lined up for the 5th annual Piece Walk and 5K Saturday morning.

The “Two Movie Guys”, Lucas and Ryan, served as grand marshals for the event.

Crystal Frost, 5k Chair for the walk, said, “The entire committee has really pulled it off every year, but this year they have out done themselves.”

According to the walk’s website, more than $124,000 was raised, with all funds going to provide grants and funding programs that benefit Oklahoma families affected by Autism.

Donations are still being accepted until June 1, 2012.
