The Philadelphia Eagles will partner with the Center for Autism Research (CAR) and The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP) to host the 6th annual Huddle Up for Autism carnival on Sunday, April 17th at Lincoln Financial Field.
The Pennsylvania Autism Census Update reports that 55,000 individuals in the state are currently receiving medical services for a form of Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD).
A family-friendly, carnival-style atmosphere will serve to educate the community about Autism while spreading awareness and fundraising for CAR and CHOP.
