Running for My Bud.
Join me in my efforts to support Autism Speaks!
I am running the Marine Corps for my Bud, for families touched by autism and for the joy and release it brings me as a special needs parent. I am excited to share pieces of my family’s story and my training with you throughout this year. This is my second Marine Corps and I am so excited to join in again.
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.
I feel so honored to run this race. I carry Brooks with me. He is my best encouragement. I know hard things can be done and it is in these challenges that we grow. Your support is so greatly appreciated!
