Autism Speaks hosts the "Light It Up Blue" gala

Posted By on Tue, Apr 17, 2012 at 5:27 PM

About 1 out of every 88 children is diagnosed with a form of autism, according to the CDC. With the disorder occurring in all racial, ethnic, and socioeconomic groups, it's no wonder that advocates have banded together to champion research into a better future for autistic individuals and their families. The Second Annual Autism Speaks Light it Up Blue Gala promotes just that.
