Every April 2nd Autism Speaks celebrates World Autism Day with a global autism awareness campaign called Light it Up Blue. As a way to spread awareness and to support the cause, we join the thousands of participants by wearing blue to work on Thursday, April 2nd.
W&G looks forward to participating again in Autism Speaks' efforts next year. For additional information about Light it Up Blue, please click here.
