HAMBURG, Pa. -

Wrestlers are getting in the ring for a good cause this weekend in Berks County.

"The Fight For Autism" is being held Saturday afternoon at the Hamburg Field House.

We caught up with crews Friday as they were getting things set up.

Members of World Professional Wrestling are taking part in the event.

The event's organizer will also be wrestling.

His son is autistic and he say's he's looking forward to giving back.

"As a thank you we thought we'd raise money so other families can get learning tools and raise money so they have it," said organizer Ron Litton.

Things kick off Saturday at 2:00pm.

All of the proceeds will go towards autism research and awareness.
