Autism Awareness Night with the Philadelphia Flyers
Thursday, March 15 vs. Atlanta Thrashers

Join the Philadelphia Flyers, Athletes Against Autism, Cure Autism Now and American Special Hockey for the 2nd Annual Autism Awareness Night when the Flyers take on the Atlanta Thrashers on Thursday, March 15 at 7:00 p.m. at the Wachovia Center. A portion of the proceeds from tickets sold through the Flyers sales office will be donated to Cure Autism Now and Athletes Against Autism. As part of the night, the Philadelphia Fearless Flyers special hockey team, which is comprised of athletes with a developmental disability, will participate in Mites on Ice during the first intermission.


Autism is the nation's fastest-growing developmental disorder as the diagnosis of autism has increased tenfold in the last decade, leading the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to call autism a national public health crisis. Autism spectrum disorders are diagnosed in one in 166 children, with four times as many boys as girls affected.

Athletes Against Autism is an initiative of the Cure Autism Now Foundation. Founding members are NHL hockey players Olaf Kolzig, Byron DaFoe and former Flyer Scott Mellanby. As fathers of children with autism, they realized the importance of using their status and influence to make an impact on the over 1.5 million people in the United States alone affected by autism.

Join us on March 15 to help raise awareness for this important initiative.

Call James Darlington at (215) 218-7536. A portion of the proceeds from tickets sold through the Flyers Sales office will go to Athletes Against Autism.
