The event raised money to help Commonwealth Autism support Virginians living with autism.

“The goal today is autism acceptance,” Commonwealth Autism President and CEO Tyler Hart. “With it being Autism Acceptance Month, we want people to understand that people that have autism can live a normal life. And we want to help them to do that. And just to let people know that we exist and we’re here to help.”
