Hello I have chosen to run for Autism for the second time. Organization for Autism Research's mission is one that is dear to my heart. They disseminate new and useful information to as many members of the autism community as possible, and direct all research and programs initiatives toward enhancing the quality of life for individuals with autism.
Many know that I often advocate for my son, Sam, who is on the spectrum. He is such a strong boy. Who through the help of many has been able to learn such things as social cues and how to make friends. While this struggle is ongoing and a daily one. This where OAR comes in, they provide materials for the world around to also understand those on the spectrum.
Please help me support Organization for Autism Research 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 68 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. $30,000 fully underwrites an applied research pilot study.
