Parker's Parade Continues to Spread Awareness

With support from the Milford Chamber of Commerce, team captain David K. and his family shared autism awareness at local businesses and helped them to ‘go blue’ for autism awareness month in Ohio.  He has chronicled his journey in this third installment of going blue.

Additionally, he and his team, Parker’s Parade, hosted not one, but TWO ‘blue parties’, at which he featured proclamations from his city, raffles and prizes, and support from former Cincinnati Bengals football player Robert Jackson. 

Way to go Parker’s Parade!

Shine a Light on Autism This Holiday Season

Earlier this month we celebrated World Autism Awareness Day, lighting over 1,000 iconic buildings and countless homes around the world blue in support of autism awareness. It’s not too late to join Autism Speaks to shine a light on autism. Autism awareness doesn’t stop after April 2nd - keep lighting your windows and homes blue and help us keep awareness of this disorder at the forefront of everyone’s mind.

Dear Mr. President

Nancy Miltenberger is the grandmother of  James and Thomas, twin boys with autism, and the Chair of the Lehigh Valley Walk Now for Autism Speaks Dear Mr. President: I hope you and your family had a wonderful visit to South America. Did you have the opportunity to visit the Christ the Redeemer statue in Rio de Janeiro? Did you know that this statue along with over 500 buildings and communities worldwide will be shining with blue lights on April 1 & 2 in honor of the United Nations’ World Autism Awareness Day?
