Lighthouse school shines light on autism

| 26/03/2014

(CNS): On Saturday, 29 March, the Lighthouse School will host a 2-mile Fun Run/Walk at North Sound Golf Club to raise local awareness about Autism. The event is the first in a series hosted by the school for students with special education needs to mark April being Autism Awareness Month. On 2 April there will be a public forum/information session at Mary Miller Hall, and the event series will conclude with a family fun day at Dolphin Discovery in West Bay on 26 April. The school is encouraging everyone to help ‘shine a light on autism’ and is promoting the series of events with the headline, ‘Light it up blue’. In keeping with the theme, a prize will be given away during the fun run/walk for the ‘bluest’ person. In addition, the first 100 registrants will receive t-shirts. 

The cost of admission to the fun run/walk is $15 for adults, $10 for children of 13 – 17 years of age, and free for younger ones. Funds raised from the event will go towards the purchase of sensory equipment for Autistic students at the Lighthouse School. The event starts at 7am.
