Students from Florida State University promote awareness for Autism at a spring festival.
The FSU organization known as - Students Promoting Autism Awareness - raised money at the Railroad Square Park to help those who suffer from the disorder.
autismspeaks.org, shows that it is estimated, that 1 in every 110 children is diagnosed with autism, making it more common than childhood cancer, juvenile diabetes and pediatric AIDS combined.
Some other FSU organizations hosted children's activities and donated art for sale.
Nisha Pradeep says, "We're hoping to bring students, families and professionals together, for our cause and really just allow everyone to utilize all the resources we have in town."
All proceeds from the fundraiser will go to The FSU autism project.
