I'm walking to raise funds for the mission of Autism Speaks - to fuel innovative research and make connections to critical lifelong supports and services for the Autism community.
I'm walking in honor of my nephews, Ben and Sam, who are impacted by Autism. They are the inspiration for our team "Ben's Brigade and Sam's Club". The lifelong supports and services developed by Autism Speaks have enabled Ben and Sam to become more independent. They currently live in a group home and participate in a busy day program, where they continue to learn new independent living skills.
I'm walking in memory of my dad, Maurice, who tirelessly supported the mission of Autism Speaks. He passed away November 30th, 2019 at the age of 90.
I'm walking in memory of Ben and Sam's grandpa, Jerry (Grandpa New Jersey), who passed away May 10, 2022 at the age of 93. Along with my father, Jerry generously supported Autism Speaks each and every year.
Please support me by donating and help me meet my fundraising goal - and you, too, can join the team and make an impact for people living with autism!
