Huddle Up for Autism

In late April, I photographed Huddle Up for Autism for the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia. Held at Lincoln Financial Field and co-hosted by The Center for Autism Research at CHOP with the Philadelphia Eagles, the event was a fun day of entertainment centered around games and activities for autistic children and their families. 

Attended by more than 3,000 people, here’s what the Philadelphia Eagles have to say about the event: “Since 2009, the Philadelphia Eagles have been proud to partner with the Center for Autism Research at The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia on Huddle Up for Autism, a family-fun day at Lincoln Financial Field. This free-of-charge event is set to educate, fundraise and create awareness for the Center for Autism Research.

While the event has a carnival-like feel, the day has been planned with attendees diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder in mind. Gluten-free foods, quiet rooms, educated volunteers and family resource tables are just a few elements that make this autism-friendly event unique.”
