Well, we are trying to get ready to running another Marine Corps Marathon (MCM) 10K to support the Organization for Autism Research (OAR) fundraising efforts. This year event will be on the 29th of October.
My goal is to raise at least $6,000 with all the proceeds going to OAR. OAR is a national non-profit organization that funds research and resources for individuals diagnosed with autism and their families. Sponsoring online is the most efficient way for me to raise funds for OAR: Please visit my personal page:

WHY RUN FOR AUTISM? 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.
