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! 

1 in 36 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.
$50,000 fully underwrites an applied research pilot study.

Finishing stretch at the Berlin HM 2024

Following the Berlin Marathon 2023, I pretty much immediately got COVID. I suppose it makes sense - the marathon draws nearly 50,000 runners - and such an effort is a huge blow to the body's immune system as all its facilities are employed to propel the body forward. After taking a month to recover fully, I jumped back in just a little too quickly and started having issues with my Achilles tendon. :/ The discomfort prevented me from running for the remainder of 2023 and only as recently as January 2024 was I able to resume running pain-free. I am immensely grateful to be in motion again and I wanted to share with you a couple of images from the Berlin Half Marathon 2024... It was an uncharacteristically warm day and a bit humid but overall a beautiful run. I finished just under a minute slower than my goal time of 1:19. There's no cheating the training. The 3 weeks leading up to the race did not contain mile volume I would have hoped but things were so busy work-wise that training had to be deprioritized. Onward and upward.

Ready for takeoff

Berlin Half Marathon April 7, 2024

Thank you to everyone who has donated! I am moved by the amount of support and generosity you've all shown towards me and also toward autism research. I have every intention of reaching out to each of you personally to express my gratitude.
