WHAT IS BLUE POWER:
Blue Power is about knowledge and ending ignorance about autism. Everyone who comes to our events will leave knowing a little about this issue affecting millions around the world. Just like pink is the color of breast cancer, blue is the color of autism awareness. What makes Blue Power different is Blue Power isn't just knowledge, it's about being encouraged and empowered to act upon this new knowledge.
When someone has Blue Power they are encourage to do two things;
1. Share information about autism to others and help spread Blue Power.
2. Interact with people with autism and their families and help end the isolation they often feel.
Our goal is for everyone who plays disc golf to have Blue Power and through disc golf we will make the world a better place!
