COLUMBUS – Central Community College basketball coaches will be participating in Coaches Powering Forward for Autism on Friday at the Raider’s Field House.
The Raiders will be hosting North Platte Community College in a home basketball game the evening of the event. CCC Officials say children, youth, and adults with Autism are encouraged to take part in the event, along with their friends and family.
Central Head Boys Basketball Coach Jerry Drymon will be wearing the official Autism Speaks blue puzzle piece in order to raise awareness.
“The Raiders men’s basketball team is proud to take part again in Coaches Powering Forward for Autism,” said Drymon. “Autism affects so many people from Columbus to all around the world. The team wants to do our part in raising awareness about autism and make a difference for those affected by it.”
CCC Officials say nearly 300 coaches now support the cause and try to raise awareness through Coaches Powering Forward for Autism.
