Team Michael

Michael Cleary is a 20-year-old young man that was diagnosed with autism at 20 months. He is heading up a 5K run / walk autism awareness event on Sunday, April 7th from 2-4 PM at the Garnet Valley High School track. Coupled with the run / walk portion of the event will be information tables and discussions to raise awareness about autism. It is free to sign up with Team Michael, however, his team of runners and walkers will be raising money for the Organization for Autism Research (OAR). He is asking that you come out and join the effort by running or walking a 5K, or just to learn about autism. It’s a great opportunity to use running to help advance efforts to better understand autism and learn more about the daily challenges of those affected by autism.

Please help us by making a contribution to our team fundraiser and sharing this page with your family and friends. Every dollar we raise will advance Organization for Autism Research's great cause!
