Welcome to My Personal Page
Hi, everyone join me in my efforts to support Autism Speaks!
I am raising funds to support a cause that is important to me while accomplishing a personal goal.
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.
On November 3rd I will be running in the famous New York City Marathon and this is more than a dream come true for me. I am especially motivated because my love of running will not just benefit a worthy cause but also I’m running because of Charlie. I'm currently working for him who is on the autism spectrum, and this marathon my first ever is dedicated to him. I already did a couple of half-marathons but not a full one. With him as my inspiration, I will do my best to finish this marathon and to make him feel happy and proud. Thank you for helping me reach our goal. Your support is greatly appreciated!
