In conjuntion of the Business of Sports Network Autism Awareness Campaign, we wish to pass along this news...
Boston’s Fenway Park, UMASS Medical School, Toro Restaurant, and Coppa Restaurant will be lit in special blue lights on the evening of Thursday, April 1 in support of Autism Speaks’ global Light It Up Blue campaign to celebrate World Autism Awareness Day (April 2) and Autism Awareness Month. Nearly 200 iconic landmarks, airports, bridges, sports arenas, museums, concert halls, restaurants as well as retail, corporate and media partners in over 25 U.S. cities and 15 countries will light up in bright blue that night to raise awareness and shine a light on autism as a growing public health crisis now affecting 1 in every 110 American children.
