The second annual Bikers Against Autism Run is being held today, starting at Ted’s Motorcycle World in Godfrey and winding up at The Hawg Pit in Grafton.  Sign up Saturday starts at 10am, with kickstands up at 12:30.

Autism is a developmental disability increasingly being diagnosed in young children. It can be devastating to families, but help is available through early diagnosis and treatment.  It is estimated that one in every 88 newborns in the U.S. may be diagnosed with an autism spectrum disorder.
