More than 20,000 Legos were donated to the Autism Society of Northern Virginia by local LearningRx brain training centers in Leesburg, Fairfax, Reston and Vienna, Va., and LearningRx directors committed to trekking a 10-foot “LEGO® Walk of Fire” in bare feet upon meeting their 20K Lego goal.

“We’re grateful to the community to help us support autism awareness and surpassed our Lego goal,” said Maureen Loftus, executive director of LearningRx of Reston and Vienna, Va. “Our Lego Walk of Fire was everything you’d expect…it was painful, but fun…the key is to walk quickly,” said Loftus.
ASNV provides LEGO®- based activities at various campaigns, but currently have to rent LEGO®s for these events. With enough LEGO®s, ASNV could have their own set of LEGO®s to be used for all of their autism outreach programs.
