More than 3 and a half million Americans, as well as 1 out of 68 children born in the US are diagnosed with Autism. In Utah, that rate increases to 1 in 54. Over $250 billion is needed annually to help those with Autism live comfortably in a world that many take for granted. This is why the Carmen B. Pingree Autism Center of Learning, Valley Behavioral Health, and Body by Banks are doing ongoing fundraisers for Autism. If you would like to help, you can donate HERE.
I had the pleasure of covering one of the fundraising events on Saturday, May 9th. at the Carmen B. Pingree Autism Center of Learning. Though there it was cold and rainy inside, there was lots of fun, excitement, and exercise going on inside, being led by the man himself, Michael Banks!
I want to thank Mr. Banks for the opportunity to be a part of this great event.
