Team Connor James
My children are my world!
I vividly remember how I felt the day our sweet Connor was diagnosed with Autism. I was scared, lost, confused, and just wanted to cry and hold him in my arms and never let go. On that day, September 30, 2015, we optimistically set out on a new life path we had never in our wildest dreams expected. In the process, we have become a stronger family, passionate advocates, and more patient parents.
One in 59 children is diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder, including 1 in 42 boys! Can you believe that?! It's a staggering number and yet it feels like we were scrambling for information when we needed it most. Thanks to the help of friends and professionals in the Autism community and Autism Speaks, we were able to quickly start Connor on the right path and get him the assistance and therapy he needed to make him the super hero he is becoming today.
I'm walking on April 28th to raise funds for the mission of Autism Speaks - to fuel innovative research and make connections to critical lifelong supports and services for the Autism community. Autism Speaks helps families like ours find resources, amazing children and adults like Connor find the community and support they need, and works to build awareness in our communities.
Please support me by donating to help us meet our fundraising goal. I would be HONORED if you also join Team Connor James and make an impact for people living with Autism! There is no commitment needed to fundraise if you don't want to, we would still love a big showing of support on walk day! Children and strollers are okay!
In 2016, we raised $1,965 in a short 15 days! In 2017, we rocked with $2690!!! In 2018, we raised an amazing $5,960! Let’s raise the bar even higher for 2019!!
Don't Forget! Many companies will match your donation! Check with your employer and contact me to receive the form you'll need. Donations are also tax deductible.
