My first marathon was the Chicago Marathon in 2021, and I ran that one in honor of all those who had supported me and my running over the years.

My second marathon was the Colfax Marathon in 2023, and I (frankly) ran that one to challenge myself to become a better runner.

For my third marathon, I'm going big. The biggest marathon staged on this planet big: the 2024 TCS NYC Marathon.

And because this is big, I want to run for a greater purpose as well.

As many of you know, my son Corey has autism. Raising a child with autism has presented challenges that I never before could even imagine. And I'm not alone. 1 in 36 children are diagnosed with autism. Every one of those (along with their parents) face these
same struggles. Thankfully, there are organizations that provide that pillar to lean on when it is needed the most.

With that in mind, and in hopes of supporting Corey - as well as all others who either have autism or support someone who does - I have decided to raise money and awareness for Organization for Autism Research. Please help me support autism research by making a contribution to my fundraiser and sharing this page with your family and friends. Every dollar raised will advance Organization for Autism Research's great cause!

Any amount you can contribute would be greatly appreciated.
And look to see if your company matches donations! (There is a link for this when you submit your donation) Many, many companies do because this is such a resposible and worthwhile organization.
