Ben Runs for Autism - NYC Marathon

Ben Burkholder

Ben Burkholder

Hi! It's nice to meet you, my name is Ben. On this page, you'll see updates on my training and progress towards running in the NYC Marathon. This race is close to my heart since I will be running in my new home for a great cause. I appreciate any 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 cause! 

My past races:
Boston Marathon 2017
Portland Marathon 2015

Why I run for autism:
1 in 54 children in the U.S. is diagnosed with autism. By donating to 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.

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.
$40,000 fully underwrites an applied research pilot study.
