At the Flutie Foundation’s recent Night to Shine Gala, we introduced our newest initiative “Autism on the Go”, which addresses the importance of an active lifestyle by funding recreation, sports and music programs for families affected by autism. This initiative honors my in-laws, Joan and Dick Flutie, who were passionate about creating opportunities and fostering active lifestyles for Doug Sr. and his three siblings.  Research shows that people with autism have a seven percent higher rate of obesity than the general population. We are passionate about changing this.
