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.
