Help Solve Our Mystery
Our son Alexander has Autism. There are no scientists who know why so many people are impacted by this condition. In order to help my son and all those impacted by Autism, I am going to run this race. We named the team Alex's Origami because my son creates origami and shares it with the world. His shortcomings in verbal expression are made up with the joy he brings sharing his creations. I would like my son and all those with Autism to be able to experience a less isolated life someday. please join me in supporting Autism research and services for those impacted.
Join me in my efforts to support Autism Speaks!
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 me reach my goal. Your support is greatly appreciated!
