Coaches Powering Forward for Autism

NCAA Awareness and Acceptance Weekend 

February 3-5, 2017

Join coaches across the country in supporting the 1 in 68 children on the autism spectrum by wearing the Autism Speaks puzzle piece pin


It all started with a simple request by two NCAA Coaches “Wear the Autism Speaks pin during your February game”  

Coaches Powering Forward for Autism was created in 2014 after NCAA Coaches Pat Skerry and Tom Herrion embarked on a mission to raise awareness of autism. Learn their story.

Today, nearly 300 coaches and their staffs support individuals living with autism through the Coaches Powering Forward for Autism campaign.

To get free Autism Speaks pins for your coaching staff, REGISTER today.
