Welcome to My Personal Page
Join me in my efforts to support Autism Speaks!
Dearest friends and family,
This November I will be embarking on a nerve wracking, holy crap am I really doing this personal challenge of running the New York City marathon. I will be running along with my cousin for the Autism Speaks team. Along with getting to represent and raise awareness for a wonderful charity that helps so many people and families every day, I have to fund raise a certain amount for them and that is where I need to ask for a little help from all you wonderful people.
If you can donate anything I would greatly appreciate the help!
I am so excited to participate in this crazy event. Many of you know I have struggled with being overweight my whole life and this is truly something that I didn’t believe I could accomplish. It has been a long health journey to get to this point and I know I cannot complete this next step without your love and support. Thank you all so much!!
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!
