Let's multi-task: Raise money for Autism AND watch Megan crush the NYC Marathon !
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.
Those who know me, know that I usually put my money where my mouth is in regards to endurance events. However, this is one time that raising money for something I believe in is very important...so I need your help!
Throughout 20 years of teaching, I've dealt with many Autistic students and I've seen their daily struggles first hand. I'm partnering up with Autism Speaks because I believe in their cause and their ability to help those on the spectrum, as well as their family and loved ones who surround them. Please help me, help them...and, yes, I'll even accept donations from Red Sox fans.
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.
Thank you for helping me reach my goal. Your support is greatly appreciated!
