This kid made a courageous decision to stand up for other kids, and many are following suit!

13-year-old Braden Albright started the Autism Awareness Club last year, and began designing and selling shirts to raise money. This year he's going even farther and has the captain of the football team stepping in to help. According to Fox 2 Detroit, Albright says that he has friends with autism, and that "School is hard enough but it is even worse if you are being made fun of for the way you look or the way you act when you can't help it." The club has a walk for awareness event on April 22nd at the Allen Park Middle School football field, and they are hoping for a good turn out and that people learn more about autism and have a nice time. To me this kid is a superhero.
