You can show your support for local families impacted by Autism by participating in the 2018
Light It Up Blue Balloon Release.
Autism, which is characterized by communication challenges and social-interaction difficulties,
affects 1 in 68 children in the U.S.
On Thursday hundreds of balloons will be released into the sky to raise awareness of this disorder.
The 2018 Light It Up Blue Autism Balloon Release will take place at 10 a.m. at Union Mission
Baptist Church No. 1 on 6029 Buncombe Rd. in Shreveport.
This is a free event so grab your family and come out to support a wonderful cause.
