AUSTIN, TX – June 28, 2016 – The international law firm, Greenberg Traurig, LLP, and its Austin office recently supported the Autism Speaks 8k Run & 1k Fun Run.

The annual event, founded in Austin in 2012, has raised more than $500,000 for Autism Speaks, a leading autism science and advocacy organization. This year alone, over $100,000 was raised.
“We are proud to sponsor the Autism Speaks Run and to support this very worthy cause.
