AutismUp celebrates 10th anniversary gala – WROC News 8

Rochester, NY (WROC) – AutismUp celebrated a big milestone Saturday night with a 10th anniversary gala.

According to the group, 1 in 68 children are diagnosed with Autism.

Sarah Milko is the Executive Director of AutismUp and she says it’s important to prepare children with Autism for the future.

“We are all local. We support over 2,000 families locally, which isn’t enough. We have to drive those numbers up. We want everyone with a child with Autism to be involved with AutismUp,” explains Milko. “We need to hear their voices. We need to all be involved because what we can do is create that road map for the future in a way that is not being done anywhere else in the nation.”

News 8’s own Scott Hetsko was at the event.
