Welcome to Miriams Personal Page
Join me in my efforts to support Autism Speaks in honor of my nephew ANGEL!
I am raising funds to support a cause that means the world to me while accomplishing a personal goal of running my FIRST Marathon. I will be running the 2019 TCS New York City Marathon, representing Autism Speaks.
Angel is the brightest, funniest and most loving boy I have ever met. He was diagnosed with Autism at the age of 2, he is now 12 years old. He has overcome every social and educational hurdle he has faced, thanks to all the support provided to him by programs that focus on enhancing the lives of individuals with autism. Running 26.2 miles will be the biggest physical challenge I have ever faced, but its nothing compared to all the challenges a child with autism like Angel will face throughout their lifetime. Angel, this one is for you!!
Autism refers to a range of conditions characterized by challenges with social skills, repetitive behaviors, speech and nonverbal communication. 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; and advancing research into causes and better interventions for autism spectrum disorder.
Thank you for helping me reach my goal. Your support is greatly appreciated! - Miriam Alicea
