Seahawks Increase Autism Awareness Efforts in April

The Seahawks this week announced an online auction with 100 percent of the proceeds dedicated to "Ben's Fund".

Launched in 2012 by Seahawks Executive Vice President/General Manager John Schneider and his wife Traci, "Ben's Fund" was created to provide grants for families supporting a child, or children on the autism spectrum in the state of Washington. Grants can be utilized to cover costs associated with medical bills, therapies and other resources.

The online auction begins on April 7 and will feature autograph memorabilia from the Seahawks Super Bowl season, such as: Super Bowl XLVIII Champions Deluxe Replica Helmet signed by Seahawks Head Coach Pete Carroll or Super Bowl XLVIII Game Program signed by Seahawks WR Doug Baldwin.
