Hello! Thank you for visiting my 2023 NYC Marathon fundraising page. I am running with the Run for Autism team. Every dollar I raise will advance the Organization for Autism Research's great cause!
1 in 44 children in the U.S. is diagnosed with autism. By supporting the Run for Autism team, you’re supporting the OAR’s mission to fund research and resources that help people with autism and their families today.
As some of you may know, I have a family member who has autism. I felt compelled to join this team because of this personal connection as well as the great work the OAR has done for years!
Here are some of the ways that the 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
Thank you so much for supporting this great cause! Every donation is greatly appreciated.
