A year ago set out to push myself in achieving in new goals. In November I signed up to run the Semper Fi Challenge. Which is to complete both the the Marine Corps Half Marathon and the Marine Corps Marathon. Due to the Covid outbreak the half marathon was changed to a virtual run. As I ran my virtual run. I had the idea to raise money for a cause for the full marathon. Being that Autism is something very close to my family. I chose to dedicate my efforts to this cause. 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!
