Autism is the fastest-growing serious developmental disability in the U.S. and now affects 1 in 68 children.
The Rock Valley College Softball team wants to raise awareness and help the cause. For the Golden Eagles game on Saturday, April 5 versus Prairie State College, the players will don special Autism Awareness jerseys as they seek to also raise money that can be donated to Autism Speaks.
Admission is always free to RVC Softball games, but those in attendance on April 5 may choose to provide a donation for Autism Speaks. There will also be a raffle that day with all of those proceeds also donated to Autism Speaks.
The teams will play two seven inning games that day beginning at noon at the RVC Softball Field on the College's main campus (3301 North Mulford Road). The rain date for this event will be Sunday, April 6 at noon when RVC takes on College of Lake County in a double-header.
For more information contact RVC Head Softball Coach Darin Monroe at (815) 921-3822.
