I am really excited to announce that I will be running the New York Marathon this November to raise money for Organization for Autism Research. This is my first full marathon and my goal is to raise $3,000 for autism research. As a special education teacher for six years, I had the wonderful opportunity to teach students with a wide range of abilities, including students on the Autism Spectrum. I am thrilled to be raising money for a cause so near to my heart.

Organization for Autism Research is a 4 star nonprofit dedicated to improving the lives of everyone affected by autism by supporting research that produces meaningful and practical results. They also provide free, evidence-based resources and information to families, educators, self-advocates, and professionals geared towards making day-to-day life easy for those affected by autism.

I would be extremely grateful if you helped me reach my goal. 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! All donations are tax-deductible.

Every bit makes a difference, no matter how big or small.

Thank you in advance for your support.
