Sunday morning marks the 16th Annual Greater Boston Autism Speaks Walk with this year’s event situated at the Xfinity Center in Mansfield, Mass. BU Men’s hockey has supported Autism Speaks since 2004, participating in the annual walk and holding an Autism Speaks Night hosting families and individuals with autism for a night of hockey and promoting autism awareness.
Autism Speaks’ Larry Cancro, a BU alum and Red Sox vice president explains that: “In one way or another, all the BU teams participate. One great thing they do is put on an event called “Autism Olympics”. They invite members of the autism community to the BU Athletic facilities to teach them different sports and participate with them. They’ve done this for several years and this year they’re expanding it to twice.”
