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!
