Supercross racers Chad Reed, Justin Brayton and Cody Gilmore will wear blue shirts all weekend at Dallas Cowboy Stadium during the Monster Energy AMA Supercross to support World Autism Awareness Day and Autism Awareness Month. They join other local supporters including Dallas/Fort Worth’s Texas Wesleyan University, The Comfort Suites North Fossil Creek, and Gaylord Texan Hotel which will illuminate with special blue lights on the evening of Friday, April 1 and/or April 2 in support of Autism Speaks’ global Light It Up Blue campaign to celebrate World Autism Awareness Day (April 2) and Autism Awareness Month. Over 700 iconic landmarks, airports, bridges, sports arenas, museums, concert halls, restaurants as well as retail, corporate and media partners in over 120 U.S. cities and 30 countries will light up in bright blue that evening to raise awareness and shine a light on autism as a growing public health crisis now affecting 1 in every 110 American children.
Ways members of the community can support Autism Speaks Light It Up Blue campaign:
· Light windows or homes with specially marked blue light bulbs and LED lanterns sold exclusively at Home Depot stores nationwide
· Download the FREE LIUB iPhone App at the iTunes Store and turn your own pictures blue with a choice of five different style frames
