Activities to benefit the Autism Speaks U club, including, a raffle and a 50/50 will be held at the game.
Club vice president Leanne Feeney, junior Early Childhood Education major, says she and several classmates established the club last year with the aim of raising awareness about autism. According to the Centers from Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), autism, a communication spectrum disorder, affects 1 in 88 children.
"I hope people will come to enjoy the game and support autism awareness efforts," she said.
Since April is Autism Awareness month, The "Autism Speaks U" club is planning more events this spring.
