Hi Friends! I will run a marathon this year to help raise money for Autism! I believe is a great cause and every dollar will help families, kids and research on autism. I'm thrilled that you decided to help on that too! You can help by making a contribution. All contributions are great !!! Thank you!!! Lucy
My personal story:
Growing up in Brazil my family was very poor, so I was able to see in first hand how affected was kids with disabilities that didn't have support or family knowledge to get the help they needed. One of this kids was my half-brother that had severe developmental disabilities including autism. So that is why I'm supporting this cause and I believe that together we can make a difference for a kid in need. Please join me!
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!
