Rhonda Smith's Fundraising Page

Thank you for helping me gain entry to run the NYC Half Marathon with my son. This is a total bucket list event for both of us. Logan gained entry into the race in the lottery draw but I did not.

Since we want to do this together I have decided to fundraise for the Organization for Autism Research. It seemed very appropriate since Logan has autism. Every dollar I raise will go to the Organization for Autism Research's great cause! Please share this page with your family and friends! Thank you.

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.
$40,000 fully underwrites an applied research pilot study.
