Welcome to My Personal Page
Thank you for visiting my page and for showing an interest in a cause that is important to our family! This year 2 amazing things happened: 1) I ran a 1/2 marathon and crossed the finish line! 2) Our oldest son was diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder. In 2020 I am going to combine these two things and run a race to raise money for a cause that will help my son. There are so many times as a parent when we feel powerless to help our kids run their own race in life, this is a tangible way you and I can help mine and others.
I am raising funds to support a cause that is important to me while accomplishing a personal goal.
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!
