  For Boston, for Boston,
  We sing our proud refrain!

  For Boston, for Boston,
  'Tis widsom's earthly fane.

  For here all are one, and
  their hearts are true, and
  The towers on the Heights
  reach to Heaven's own blue.

  For Boston, For Boston,
  Till the echoes ring again!

Flutie Foundation Presents Grants

The Doug Flutie, Jr. Foundation for Autism has handed out $352,795 in grants to 28 non-profits groups located around the United States and Canada.

The Autism Alliance of MetroWest Inc. in Natick received $8,400 last week to help create the sensory-based gym for autistic children. The North Shore ARC/Autism Support Center in Danvers received a $10,000 grant.

The Foundation was established in 1998 by Doug Flutie '85 and his wife, Laurie, in honor of their son, Doug, Jr., who was diagnosed with autism at the age of 3. Autism is a neurological disorder that impacts the normal development of the brain in the areas of social interaction and communication skills. It affects more than 1.5 million people in the United States.
