Hey everyone, thank you for taking the time to check out our fundraising page. This campaign was inspired by my buddy Colton. Over the last year our families have grown close and I can't help but be blown away by just how awesome this kid is. The world through his eyes is so unique and we are so lucky to have the chance to get to know him. There are kids all over the world just like him who could greatly benefit from these funds for additional research and we hope you could help aid in that goal. So either donate whatever amount you can, or share the campaign and we'll keep you updated for any future events or happenings in Colton's world!
WHY RUN FOR AUTISM? 1 in 54 children in the U.S. is diagnosed with autism. By joining the RUN FOR AUTISM team, you’re supporting OAR’s mission to fund research and resources that help people with autism and their families today.
Here are some of the ways that OAR uses the funds raised by the RUN FOR AUTISM team:
$10 provides a Curriculum in a Box professional development set to general education teachers. $25 provides 15 copies of A Guide to Safety to families and first responders. $100 provides the Kit for Kids peer education resource to an entire elementary or middle school. $150 provides 100 copies of a Life Journey through Autism guidebook sent to a community support group or military installation. $1,000 provides a research grant for a graduate student studying autism. $3,000 provides a scholarship for a student with autism to attend college. $40,000 fully underwrites an applied research pilot study.
