ATLANTA (CBS46) -

Thousands of people donned blue t-shirts and walked to raise awareness for autism Sunday morning.

The Autism Speaks Walk was held near Turner Field.

According to the organization, an estimated one in 68 children in the United States is on the autism spectrum.

The walk, in conjunction with other Autism Speaks walks across the world, is autism's largest fundraising event.

So far, the Atlanta walk has raised more than $384 thousand dollars but walkers are still shy of their goal of $643 thousand dollars.
