Robbie McKennett runs for Autism
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 has impacted my life in many ways. One way it has impacted my life is that gives me a different perspective of the world.
Autism has had some negative effects on me. I have a hard time distinguishing reality from fiction. I just compare everything that I say or hear to fiction. This causes me to get nervous that bad things are going to happen. It evens happens when I find real life reports. This causes me to panic about what will happen in my future then I panic.
Autism has also taught me to be better at controlling myself. I had to learn to take deep breaths, to listen to others, and to think about what I am saying. Autism has made me think outside the box and made me more creative. I read original stories and I think of things to add to make them better.
Autism Speaks is an organization that is trying to help me and other kids/adults with Autism. My personal goal is to train for this race, so I can run/walk a mile in under 12 minutes. My goal for my future is to begin my own online store based on my Disney photos and paintings. I would love to work in Disney one day, but I have to get better at talking to people. I hope Autism Speaks finds a cure or a medicine that will help me achieve this goal one day. Your help with this race can make that happen.
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!
