On November 7th, I’ll be running the New York City Marathon with Run for Autism in aid of the Organization for Autism Research.

As many of you know, my mom (Annette Tucker) has dedicated the past 17 years of her life to educating students with autism and special needs in the Ridgewood Public School system. I have seen first hand through my mom’s many years as an educator how transformative education, intervention, and support can be to the life of a child with autism. It is my honor to run the marathon in support of a charity which is dedicated to the funding of autism research to help educators continue to change lives. Any donation you can make is greatly appreciated!

Thank you for all of your support!!

WHY RUN FOR AUTISM?
