April is Autism Awareness Month and Thursday is World Autism Awareness Day. A bridge in the Hudson Valley will be among many sites lit up in blue.
Landmarks across the world – from the Sydney Opera House in Australia to the Empire State Building to the Great Buddha Statue in Japan -- are lighting blue to shine a light on autism. Michelle Hathaway is with Poughkeepsie-based Greystone Programs.
“And right here in the Hudson Valley, at Greystone Programs’ request, the Mid-Hudson Bridge will be lit up blue tonight.”
