Search is on for autism breakthrough

In early May, thousands of people turned out at Finlay Park in Columbia for “Strides for Autism,” a fundraising walk to raise support for the S.C. Autism Society. And about a month earlier, a similar event at Heritage Park in Simpsonville saw an impressive turnout.

It was heartening, but not surprising, to see those events so well-attended. Over the years, as I’ve met and spoken with families affected by autism, I’ve been moved by how strongly they support each other and rally around a shared cause.
