UM frats raise $60K for GPS devices for autistic kids

Ann Arbor — Nineteen fraternities at the University of Michigan say they’ve raised $60,000 to provide GPS tracking devices to families with autistic children.

The fraternities worked on the project with the Autism Alliance of Michigan. They want to help families whose children wander.

They plan to talk about it Sunday at 1 p.m. at Alpha Sigma Phi in Ann Arbor, along with the parents of a Troy boy who died in 2012.

Sean Taglione was autistic. The 12-year-old walked away from his home and was hit by a car.
