Walker Suhr, 13, a seventh-grader at Brehm Preparatory School in Carbondale, prepares to be covered in red chalk during the 2016 Autism Color Fun Run/Walk on April 16 near the Lew Hartzog Track & Field Complex. Ashley Showalter, secretary for the southern Illinois chapter of the Autism Society of Illinois, which sponsored the event, said the event’s purpose was to raise awareness and money to fund families in southern Illinois who have a family member affected by autism. “It’s good to raise money for people that are in need,” Suhr said. “This is a fun way to help them.” — April 16, 2016, Carbondale, Ill. (Jacob Wiegand | @jawiegandphoto)
