Cora Bentley's Fundraising Page

I am running the 2023 Credit Union Cherry Blossom 10 Miler in honor of my brother Lincoln! Being only two years a part, we have been best friends ever since I can remember. Linc was diagnosed with autism when he was only two years old. Growing up with him, I have seen how the SPED system has worked and not worked for people with autism, as well the lack of services and accommodations that disabled adults receive compared to K-12 grade kids.

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! 

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.
$40,000 fully underwrites an applied research pilot study.
