Stomp the Swamp for Autism
GAINESVILLE - It may not be football season, but The Swamp saw plenty of action this morning as people worked out for a good cause.
The 5th annual "Stomp the Swamp for Autism" brought out Gators of all kinds to help raise money and awareness.
It's the biggest turn out the event has seen in its 5 years.
Participants ran or walked stadiums, and enjoyed music and games. One participant says she couldn't believe the turn out - "I believe this event is just so positive because it really does unite UF students and faculty members and professionals and businesses, and children and families and it's just so great to see everyone here for this important cause."
More than 500 people came out for today's event.
All the money raised benefits UF's Center for Autism and Related Disabilities, which provides care and support to autism communities in North Central Florida.
