Welcome to my Marathon Fundraising page! Autism is something that I hold near and dear to my heart. I worked at Camp Anchor on Long Island for 8 summers where I worked with children and adults that have autism. Chances are you know someone that is affected by Autism and I am running with the Organization for Autism Research to help fund and raise awareness for OAR's great mission to fund research and resources to help people with Autism and their families.

I wanted to run for a purpose bigger than myself, some of the best people in my life have autism and they have done more for me than I could have ever done for them. One small donation can help someone or a family in need of resources and research.

Please help me support 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.
$50,000 fully underwrites an applied research pilot study.
