Autism Community Center holds bowling event

— Autism is one of the fastest-growing developmental disorders in the U.S., and one local organization is taking a strike against this rate.
The West Virginia Northern Autism Community Center held a
bowling event to raise awareness on Monday. It was held at the Steel Valley Bowling Center in Weirton.
Organizers say it's a great way to get young adults with
developmental disabilities to come out and have a great time.
"So we can get them out for a night together to meet each
other, to make some friends, to have something to do, since they don't have activities," said Christina Fair, Autism Society of West Virginia president.
Fair says they plan to have at least one bowling night
per month. If you're interested in joining the fun, you can contact the Hancock-Brooke Resource Network.
