Dan Marino Foundation
Just this past week the Centers for Disease Control reported an autism rate in this country of one in 68 children, that’s a 30 percent increase from two years ago. We focus on the Dan Marino Foundation’s ongoing efforts to promote autism awareness and support, specifically its annual teaming up with Panera Bread, to score a “Touchdown for Autism”.
Autism is a disorder now believed to affect as many as one in 55 children. We take an in-depth look at the Dan Marino Foundation, and the work it has done as a one-stop place for the diagnosis, treatment and services for children with autism.
Driven by individuals with autism, their families and friends, the historic fundraising effort generated awareness and crucial funds for autism services.
