Charlie inspired me to run this race for the first time 6 years ago, when I never ran a day in my life! He has taught me that great things are possible, and to "never say never."
Whether you are a runner, or a walker, or a stroller pusher, we would LOVE to have you join us!
In 15 years, I have seen my son do, and say things I once never thought I would witness.
Charlie was diagnosed with Autism before age 2, and he still continues to grow and learn, and surprise me everyday.
Autism is becoming the fastest-growing serious developmental disability in the US with 1 in 36 having been identified with ASD according to the latest CDC data.
I am so grateful for the love and support from family, friends, and so many of his teachers, aides, and therapists over the years.
Thank you for supporting TEAM ALIANA!
