The Autism Society of Broward and Boy Scout Troop 460, are proud to help families of children and adults with autism have the opportunity to experience a family field day and picnic event. Children with autism typically are not given the opportunity to find the joys in many outdoor activities. Children with autism can be non-verbal, unaware of dangers, have elopement behaviors, and struggle with working cooperatively in a group. By setting up a field day atmosphere that is safe and inviting to those with autism is just one facet of how we are committed to helping the community. We are thrilled to be able to give back to our caring families in need.
The event will entail a fun filled day of lots of great food, field day games, and awards for everyone who attends. Guests will enjoy our prestigious raffle and the chance to win wonderful gifts from local supporters and businesses. We hope you will join us in our effort to touch the lives of those living with autism!
The proceeds will benefit The Autism Society of America, Broward Chapter. The Autism Society, the nation’s leading grassroots autism organization, exists to improve the lives of all affected by autism. We do this by increasing public awareness about the day-to-day issues faced by people on the spectrum, advocating for appropriate services for individuals across the lifespan, and providing the latest information regarding treatment, education, research and advocacy.

The event will be held on Saturday, February 27, 2010 at Markham Park located at 16001 W. St Road 84, Sunrise, FL.
