Superheroes of all ages turned out to attend the autism awareness event which was held at The Rush of Cleveland on May 16.

Through a partnership with Amaze Behavior Therapy and The Rush Fitness Complex, the event was created as a fundraiser to provide therapy services and communitywide training for children with autism in the Cleveland area.

Nearly 100 participants joined the festivities, which included three bounce houses, a rock wall, children’s fitness classes, food, games, and several other family–friendly activities.

Vendor booths lined the halls of the two-story Rush complex to provide information and a bit of fun for families who were attending.

Children were able to shake hands and take pictures with real costumed superheroes from Chattoine — such as Batman, Superman, Spiderman Noir, and others.

One of the vendors remarked, “What a fun event we had and what an opportunity to share information about autism and the services that we offer to the community.”

Several of the vendors stated they were able to network with other service providers during the event, opening doors for more collaborative services for children, and many have suggested making the event an annual autism-awareness activity for Cleveland.

The communitywide training sessions will take place after school resumes in the fall.
