Join us in our efforts to support Autism Speaks!
We are raising funds to support a cause that is important to us as parents of autistic children. All donations go to the program as Jenni is running as an ambassador for Autism Speaks in the Big Sur Marathon in April 2022!
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 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. We have been lucky to have been given comprehensive support through a many programs and support groups. This is our chance to give back and promote a way for others to spread awareness on ways to support these programs.
Autism Speaks enhances lives today and is accelerating a spectrum of solutions for tomorrow.
Thank you for helping us reach out goal. Your support is greatly appreciated!
