I am so excited to share I'll be running the 2023 London Marathon on April 23, 2023 in support of the Organization for Autism Research. This will be my 3rd marathon, and I am thrilled to make all the training miles matter more for this special cause! Having spent time in college tutoring and mentoring a young girl with autism, this charity is very meaningful to me personally. The work OAR is doing has actual day-to-day impact on quality of life for those with autism, and I am so proud to represent this organization. I encourage you to read more below about how specifically OAR will use the funds you are so generously donating.

1 in 44 children in the U.S. is diagnosed with autism. By joining me in support of 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.
$30,000 fully underwrites an applied research pilot study.

Please help me support Organization for Autism Research by making a contribution to my fundraiser and sharing this page with your family and friends. Every dollar I raise will advance Organization for Autism Research's great cause! 

And lastly, thank you again for your support- it's appreciated more than you can ever know!
