With a little help from Mother Nature, Superheroes were able to gather today in Bethlehem to raise money and awareness for Autism. The Live, Learn, & Play Superhero 5 K was able to raise over 9,000 dollars. All of which stays local to help people in the Lehigh Valley. Along with the excitement of today’s event Live, Learn, & Play is also excited to announce the opening of their Inclusive Center which will be located at the South Mall.
