Autism Speaks and it's time we listen. Over the years we've heard from friends, both of and within the etnies family, who are touched by autism's growing prevalence and its still unknown causes. Raising money and awareness will hopefully lead to research and ultimately to answers. The etnies x Autism Speaks kids' RVM and Fader will be available in stores for spring 2011.
“We are impressed by the great strides in funding autism research, developing resources and treatments Autism Speaks has made in its first five years,” said Don Brown, senior VP of marketing for etnies. “etnies is proud to support Autism Speaks, and looks forward to showing kids on the autism spectrum the action sports etnies is all about. With these shoes, we’re helping Autism Speaks take its next step towards finding the answers of autism.”
"We are thrilled that etnies has decided to support Autism Speaks to increase autism awareness," said Suzanne Wright, Co-founder of Autism Speaks."The support of etnies will help Autism Speaks continue to fund research aimed at unraveling the mysteries of autism and helping those families who are affected by this complicated and often misunderstood disorder."
