Join Autism Speaks for 2016 Coaching Powering Forward as Georgia Tech takes on Notre Dame on Saturday, February 20th at McCamish Pavilion. Tickets are $20 and will sell out.

$5 of every ticket will benefit Autism Speaks Georgia.

Coaches Powering Forward for Autism was created in 2014 after NCAA Coaches Pat Skerry and Tom Herrion embarked on a mission to raise awareness of autism. Inspired by their sons, both diagnosed with autism, they made a simple request to fellow coaches: Wear the Autism Speaks blue puzzle piece pin during televised games the first weekend of February. In an overwhelming response, more than 82 NCAA coaches and broadcasters took to the sidelines and airwaves throughout the weekend wearing the pin.

In 2015, the support soared to 250 coaches and their staffs wearing the pins and more than 60 schools participating in the fund raising campaign of $6800 per school for the 1 in 68 children currently diagnosed on the spectrum.

The 2016 goal is to continue to grow the program to include all Division I programs, along with other divisions and provide basketball coaches, their teams, schools and community supporters with an even greater opportunity to help increase awareness, fundraise and advocate for the needs of families and individuals affected by autism.
