Help me run the NYC Marathon 2019!!
Join me in my efforts to support Autism Speaks!
Throughout this year I have been working closely with individuals with Autism, and the experience has been truly life changing. All of the students are so amazing and have taught me more than I could ever imagine about working with children with disabilities. As I begin my career as an Occupational Therapist, I am looking forward to more opportunities to work with individuals with ASD in meaningful ways. I have signed up for the NYC Marathon on November 3 and I will be running and fundraising for the Autism Speaks team. It has always been a dream of mine to run the NYC marathon and I couldn’t think of a better way to do than by combining my passions and supporting a cause near to my heart.
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!
