Please help our team support autism research by making a contribution to our fundraiser and sharing this page with your family and friends. Autism hits very close to home as both of our boys Julian and Adrian were diagnosed at the age of 2. We are not searching for a silver bullet, but we have done a variety of things to help them lead healthy and independent lives as they develop and grow older. Every dollar I raise will advance Organization for Autism Research's great cause and will help build the community to keep us all Spectrum Strong! Please help support and spread our message to impact other families like us. :)
WHY RUN FOR AUTISM? 1 in 44 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.
