Governor's mansion goes blue for autism awareness

By The Herald Staff | 4/2/2014

TOPEKA — The governor’s mansion was illuminated with blue light today to show support for World Autism Awareness Day, Mary Brownback, Kansas first lady, announced in a news release.

Cedar Crest, the residence of the incumbent Kansas governor, was decorated today for the Light It Up Blue event — a global initiative that kicks-off Autism Awareness Month and aims to increase and develop world knowledge of the autism crisis and impart information regarding the importance of early diagnosis and early intervention. The initiative begins with the United Nations-sanctioned World Autism Awareness Day today.

“The blue lights will be up this evening to symbolize our support for World Autism Awareness Day,” Mary Brownback said.
