IL, Cary- Austism Speaks Awareness Day. 10/09/10

Postby TK3446 » Wed Oct 13, 2010 2:58 pm

On Saturday October 9th 2010 the MWG had participated with Autism Speaks and their Autism Awareness Day. Missi Brezina, mother of Danny, invited us because her son has autism and met the MWG at the Soldier Field autism event in the spring. This awareness day event was at the Cary Junior Football field where football games were going on. (We never got to see Danny because his football team had a game up in Antioch. I'm sure we see him at another event since he is such a big fan.) We arrived early in the morning and were ready to go by 9AM. We saw a group of cheerleaders first and they were pretty excited to see us. We then went down to the Autism Speaks booth and meet Mary who represents Autism Speaks. We hung out there, took a lot of pictures with people, signed a few autographs, and even collected money for the 50/50 raffle that they were doing every few games. By 11 the weather started to get a little hot. We new by noon it was time to suit down which we did. After making sure Whinter was OK because the heat finally caught up with her some of us grabbed a bite at a local restaurant. I hope everyone had a good time.

Thank you all!
