Thank you for taking the time to check out my fundraising page.
This year I have chosen to participate in the Active for Autism Virtual 5K! All proceeds from the Active for Autism Virtual 5K will go to OAR’s new Changing Lives Fund and will be used solely for direct research and programs support. In November, OAR will allocate the available funds to support one of OAR’s new research studies. Our goal is to raise $80,000, enough to fully fund two research studies. Any funds raised over $80,000 will go to support OAR’s mission to apply research to the challenges of autism.
WHY RUN FOR AUTISM?
1 in 54 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.
In tagalog, "bayani" means "hero". I've chosen to name my team "bayani" because of someone dear to me that I consider to be a bayani(hero). I participate and advocate for my friends and family members who have autism. 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! While you're on the page I encourage you to check out the resources they provide and the great impact they are making in our communities!
