Join me in my efforts to support Autism Speaks!
I am extremely excited to be a part of such a unique experience! When a friend reached out to me about running the New York City Marathon for Team Broadridge, supporting the cause Autism Speaks, I immediately said yes! Getting to fundraise for an important cause that affects so many people while challenging myself to new heights was a no-brainer. I’ve had amazing conversations with families who have had Autism directly impact their lives and I’m looking forward to continuing to educate myself, while also challenging many others to learn about and bring awareness to Autism!
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!
