Hello Family and Friends! Thank you for visiting my fundraising page!
I'm excited to announce that I'll be running the London Marathon on April 21, 2024. This one is going to be extra special:
• This will be my 25th full marathon. • 4th World Marathon Majors (along with NYC, Chicago, and Berlin). • I'm celebrating my 40th birthday this year! • I pledged to raise $6,000 for the Organization for Autism Research. • I previously raised $1,500 for OAR as part of the Chicago Marathon.
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!
WHY RUN FOR AUTISM? 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. $30,000 fully underwrites an applied research pilot study.
