Why I Walk for Autism Speaks, and Why I Ask for Your Support!
It is that time of year again when I reach out to each of you for your support in my endeavor to raise money for Autism Speaks. This will be my 8th year participating in the Autism Speaks Walk at the Rose Bowl, scheduled for April 27th!
The Autism Speaks Walk is powered by the love of parents, grandparents, siblings, relatives, friends, and supporters, like you! The funds raised help to ensure that those on the Autism Spectrum have access to the tools needed to lead “their best lives”.
Autism Speaks is committed to promoting solutions across the spectrum & throughout the life span for people with autism and their families. Here are just a few ways they've made progress in the past year:
Increasing understanding and acceptance
Successfully advocated for medical insurance coverage of autism care in 2 more states, bringing the total to 48 states that now have insurance coverage for autism treatment.
Contributed to the discovery of a previously hidden type of genetic influence on autism.
Championed ABLE savings accounts for people with disabilities, including autism. These tax-advantaged accounts are currently available in 40 states and the District of Columbia, totalling more than $144 million in gross contributions.
Launched new AutismSpeaks.org for easier access to interactive tools, expert advice and personalized resources for more than 1.5M monthly visitors.
Won’t you please help me in this effort by supporting my walk on April 27th, with a donation to help me meet my fundraising goal? Our strength as a community is powered by the dedicated commitment of supporters like you! Your gift will enhance the lives of people on the autism spectrum today, and in the future.
