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! 
Ryan’sROAR was created to advocate for kids living, growing, learning, and thriving with ASD. We want to raise money to create learning opportunities that will not only benefit our sweet Ryan the Lion, but will also benefit so many others around the world as well. Our goal is 1500.00 to provide a college grant to a college student studying autism, and educational materials for families, and friends of those with ASD (though 3,000 to provide a scholarship to a college student with autism is twice as nice 😉) With the CDC reporting that 1 in every 54 boys are diagnosed with ASD (boys are 4 times more likely to be diagnosed than girls) there is a desperate need for continued research towards providing each child with early intervention so they too can have the greatest opportunities in life. We are dedicated to helping the world change to fit autism, not changing autism to fit the world.

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.

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.
