Renton, Washington – =Super Bowl champions the Seahawks are part of a fundraiser to support families with autistic children.

Head of the team. General Manger John Schneider has an autistic child. The Komo News website reports that Tracy Schneider said about their son, Ben now aged 12:

“It was horrible because you never want to hear something is wrong with your child, and something so big as autism. On the other hand, it was comforting in away because we finally knew what was happening.”

The couple founded “Ben’s Fund” to give grants to families through the autism support group Families for Effective Autism Treatment (FEAT).

The couple also encourage people to learn more about autism and how to support other families.

“Autism is so prevalent now. It’s an okay thing,” he said. “There’s help for people, and there’s a lot of hope.”
