First and foremost, I want to thank everyone for even clicking the link to see what this walk is about. My nephew is 9 and will be turning 10 in March. He was diagnosed with Autism, ADHD, developmental delay and a learning disorder. A lot to take in, but we are living it and getting through it day by day! Any contributions will be greatly appreciated as they will go towards research, resources and other great services that deal with autism!
Today, over 70 million children and adults are affected by autism. Each of them, have unique strengths, challenges and potential. Autism Speaks will be there for them. You and I can be too.
It’s only through the dedicated support of people like us that Autism Speaks can continue their vital mission work. Each year, the Autism Speaks Autism Response Team makes direct contact with tens of thousands of individuals looking for advice or guidance and more than one million people access their free nationwide autism services and resources. They continue to partner and support research to improve the lives of people with autism by investing in science that will allow more personalized treatments and therapies. You can find out even more about where your fundraising dollars go at autismspeaks.org/our-work.
Please join me by donating to help me reach my fundraising goal. Together, we have the power to enhance the lives of people with autism and make a meaningful difference. Thanks so much for your support!
