I am excited to announce that I will be running the NYC marathon this year on Nov 6th for Autism Speaks.
The fact is Autism Speaks was the first place friends and family went to find answers in such a difficult time that helped lead their children on a great path.
Autism has effected some people I love very dearly so it holds a special place in my heart.
Currently one out of 44 children have autism. If you or anyone that you know has been affected by autism this Race is for You.
To all the parents that are dealing with a child on the spectrum, this Race is for You.
I am proud to run these 26 miles to spread awareness for autism and I appreciate all your donations to help me achieve this goal.
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.
Autism Speaks enhances lives today and is accelerating a spectrum of solutions for tomorrow.
Thank you for helping me reach my goal. Your support is greatly appreciated!
