On April 8, the Philadelphia 76ers hosted an autism awareness game against the Washington Wizards.

One of the top team captains for Philadelphia's Walk Now for Autism Speaks chapter was honored along with her family as a Hometown Hero.

They were presented with an award on the court and Brittany Fertman, the top team captain, was interviewed by Comcast Sportsnet Philadelphia which aired live.

All of the 76ers staff — over 150 people — wore our Autism Speaks puzzle piece pin, and the Autism Speaks PSA played several times throughout the game.

Thank you, NBA and the Philadelphia 76ers for your continued support!
