ELKHART — For the third year, ADEC Inc. will hold its Light the Way for Autism Awareness event to bring attention to a developmental disability that affects children and adults in Elkhart County and around the world.

ADEC’s Autism Team will host an hourlong program beginning at 10 a.m. on Saturday, April 27, at Kardzhali Park, 303 Nibco Parkway in Elkhart. Participants will be invited to decorate blue balloons in honor of someone challenged by autism.
