Autism is a complex developmental disorder, which typically appears during the first three years of life and affects a person’s ability to communicate and interact with the environment and other people. There is no known single cause of autism, but increased awareness and funding can help families today. The prevalence of autism is on the rise, it affects 1 in every 88 children in the United States and almost 1 in 54 boys.
April is National Autism Awareness Month. Kenlee Wood is honoring her 3 year old brother, Weston, who suffers from autism, by raising awareness through our MSLBRA April rodeo on April 26th and 27th. She is asking all Little Britches contestants to wear blue in honor of the “Light it up Blue” campaign to raise autism awareness.
In addition, Kenlee helped design an autism awareness t-shirt to be delivered at our April 26th rodeo. The proceeds from the sale of the t-shirts will benefit “Mitchell’s Place”, a comprehensive treatment center for autistic children located in Birmingham, AL.
Please show your support and visit the t-shirt order form attached link. Order forms with payment may be submitted to Jason Wood at the March rodeo or mailed to Jason and Lindy Wood, 182 McCainville Road, Livingston, AL 35470. The deadline to order the t-shirts is Monday, April 7th.
Thank you so much for your support!
