PITT OHIO is "On the Road for The Cure." Our employees have been raising money for Autism Research since 2000. PITT OHIO became involved with Autism Speaks through one of our employees, who is the proud father of two sons on the Autism Spectrum. These two boys, along with the other children of our employees who would benefit from this research, motivate PITT OHIO each year to raise more and more money for research.
