Hello Everyone ! This November, I’ll be running the 2020 New York City Marathon along with over 50,000 others. I will be running for charity, raising money with The Organization For Autism Research (OAR).

I am here to ask for your support. Please help me raise money for this great charity while I run my first marathon. I plan on greatly surpassing the required goal of $3,500 and running the 26.2 miles in under 4hrs. So please, if you can I’d truly appreciate it.

Any donation helps.

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! 

1 in 68 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.
$30,000 fully underwrites an applied research pilot study.
