Help me support Autism Speaks & run the Disney Princess Half Marathon!
I am raising funds to support Autism while accomplishing a personal goal.
I started running a year or so ago to keep my blood pressure down naturally. I realized quickly I enjoy running and set a goal for myself. My brother was a runner and ran a Disney Marathon before his passing. I decided in my brother's memory/honor to train for and run a Disney Half Marathon. The Half marathon will be February 21, 2021 at Disney World Orlando Fla. Instead of simply running the race I am running with a cause and have teamed up with Autism Speaks. Thank you for helping me reach my goal. Your support is greatly appreciated!
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, 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 54 children is on the autism spectrum.
Autism Speaks enhances lives today and is accelerating a spectrum of solutions for tomorrow.
