It's 5K time again, and Team Jarhead rides again. We are looking to raise at least $5,000 and help OAR in turn raise $80,000, enough to fund two new research studies in 2021. Please help by making a contribution and sharing this page with your family and friends.
Team Jarhead is a group of people from across the country. Several as the team name suggests are proud Marine Corps veterans of many vintages. Others are their family members and friends as well as friends and colleagues from OAR and the autism community. We have kids as young as 9 and 10 and older kids in their 70s! What we have in common is a mission to support autism research through the Active For Autism 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.
Thank you for your generous support. Semper Fidelis
