Help the Sanfords support Autism Speaks!
As we begin World Autism Month, we ask you to please join us in our efforts to support a cause that is very important to our family.
As you may know, one of our sons has Autism Spectrum Disorder. Autism, and the challenges it brings, plays a big part in our family and our lives. We have discovered the huge impact that quality support and services for individuals with autism and their families can have, when they are available.
Bill will be running in the 2019 NYC Marathon, and has committed to raising a minimum of $3500 for Autism Speaks. Please help support us in this important project by contributing as generously as you are able. Any amount helps!
Autism, or autism spectrum disorder, refers to a range of conditions characterized by challenges with social skills, repetitive behaviors, speech and nonverbal communication. The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimates 1 in 59 children is on the autism spectrum.
Autism Speaks is dedicated to promoting solutions, across the spectrum and throughout the lifespan, for the needs of individuals with autism and their families through advocacy and support; increasing understanding and acceptance of autism spectrum disorder; and advancing research into causes and better interventions for autism spectrum disorder and related conditions. They empower people with autism and their families with resources, online tools and information covering the life span.
Autism Speaks enhances lives today and is accelerating a spectrum of solutions for tomorrow.
Thank you for helping us reach our goal and for supporting individuals with autism and their families. Your support is greatly appreciated!
