Thank you for visiting my fundraising page. I am beyond excited to be Running For Autism in 2022. This means a lot to me. For some time now I have wanted to do this. As many of you know, my Christopher is Autistic. He was diagnosed in February 1999. Back then there wasn't google and not many resources or support for a parents and families. Thankfully, there are organizations such as OAR. Read below or look through the website to see what they are about. I will be proudly wearing my puzzle pieces for the NYC Half Marathon. Please consider supporting me in my fundraising efforts. I am running for my son Christopher and for all the children and families touched by Autism. It is an extreme honor for me to do what I love and spread awareness for Autism while being able to support an organization that does so much.
Thank you. No donation is too small. As always, your love and support for me is greatly appreciated. I hope to make you all proud! Please help me support Organization for Autism Research 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!
