During the Audible for Autism Halftime Touchdown Run, Ron Jaworski and City Councilman Green will put on the pads one more time and take the field with two pre-selected children, who will join the team huddles as running backs. The Halftime Touchdown Run teams will be comprised of members of the Philadelphia Police Department. The teams will snap the ball, and execute the touchdown run with the children running down each sideline in front of the cheering crowd on their way to their first Touchdowns! The Halftime Touchdown Run and accompanying festivities have given children and their families indelible memories that they will always cherish.
The Audible for Autism “Shining Light” Sports Therapy Festival and Spectrum Talent Showcase will kick-off following the game. The festival will invite children and their families to take the field and participate in a variety of interactive sports activity stations, such as basketball, hockey, baseball, football, and soccer. As you navigate through the festival, children will perform their favorite talents, and receive trophies, ribbons, and awards. In addition, the festival will implement cutting-edge researched activities proven to assist children and their families in overcoming some of the daily challenges that living on the Spectrum present.
“Our goal is to give each child a day they will always remember, one that will make them feel that their community loves and accepts them.” says multi-GRAMMY Award winner and founding member of Audible For Autism, Muzz Skillings.
