Cowboys Connect with Autism

University of Wyoming- COWBOYS CONNECT WITH AUTISMThis guest post is by Karen Schroyer, the wife of the head coach from the University of Wyoming’s Basketball team. Karen and her husband have a son named Hayden who is affected by autism.

Hello Wyoming fans! Please join us this Saturday, February 5th @ 6pm for the CSU game at the Arena auditorium. We are proud to announce the second annual COWBOYS CONNECT WITH AUTISM (WHITE OUT)!! As many of you know this is an event that is very near and dear to our family. Through all the research and intervention we have encountered over the years with our son, this is something very important and special to us. We want to provide an opportunity where awareness is made and support can be given by everyone!

We have partnered again, with Autism Speaks. One of the largest advocate organizations in the country. They continue to provide support and resources to so many families in need. With autism still on the rise, now effecting 1 out of every 110 children, and 1 in 70  boys. We personally ask you to show your support for this cause. You can pick up this year’s COWBOYS CONNECT WITH AUTISM t-shirt at the Brown and Gold Outlet in Laramie or Cheyenne, or at the Arena-Auditorium on the evening of the game. Or, pick one up before the CSU game for $15 and $10 will go directly to Autism Speaks. We thank you in advance for your support and for making this a successful day for so many.

    I would like to offer my sincere hope that the COWBOYS CONNECT WITH AUTISM “White Out” is a complete success. I would also like to make a donatipon if you could email me back the address to send it to.
    As a former Cowboy football player (’65-’69) I have a grandson with autism and we have done many fund raisers with Autism Walks and such. The world is finally beginning to understand that the children with autism need special help, diets and therapy to overcome their problem.
    I THANK YOU for taking up this cause and pray your son overcomes his autism.
