Elliot Sadler's Autism Awareness Helmet To Be Auctioned

>> Thursday, April 2, 2009

Elliot Sadler will be taking on the Texas Motor Speedway this weekend with an autism awareness helmet. The helmet will be auctioned off at the end of the month, and will benefit the Hermie and Elliott Sadler Foundation and other autism related charities. He was asked why supporting autism is important to him, and this is what he had to say.

"I think the reason that it's so important to me is because of my niece Halie. Halie was diagnosed with Autism a couple years ago, and when she was we didn't know what it was or really anything about it. So we went out and researched the disorder and what we could do to help. To be honest it was the reason that my brother Hermie (Sadler) and I started our foundation. We wanted to raise autism awareness and money to further research and help other families in our situation. One of the biggest things that we've learned at this point is that early detection is the biggest key."

You can learn more about the autism awareness helmet by going to to the Sadler Foundation, where the auction will be held, so sign up today to bid on current items and the autism awareness helmet at the end of the month.
