Hello Everyone! Over the past two years, through your donations I have raised over $5000 for Autism Research while running. This year my goal is to raise $8000 for this worthy cause that is close to my heart while I run both the London Marathon in April and the Berlin Marathon in September. As you know, my granddaughter Karina is on the spectrum and through early intervention and programs supported by OAR she has learned and developed so much since her diagnosis over 3 years ago. So I ask that you please help me support Karina and other children, teenagers and adults like her through 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! 

1 in 36 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.
$50,000 fully underwrites an applied research pilot study.
