BENEFITING: ORGANIZATION FOR AUTISM RESEARCH
ORGANIZER: ORGANIZATION FOR AUTISM RESEARCH
EVENT DATE: Nov 06, 2016
It is with much excitement that I will be running the TCS New York City Marathon in November in honor of all the children that I have had the honor to work with as an Early Intervention Therapist. Many of "my kids" have developmental delays associated with group of complex disorders of brain development commonly called Autism. With your assistance, I pledge to raise $3000 for the Organization for Autistic Research (OAR) in hopes of finding a cure for this rapidly skyrocketing disorder.
Autism is found in all socioeconomic groups, and, in the state of New Jersey, affects 1 in 45 children. The cause of the increased prevalence is unknown, but with increased research we hopefully will find an answer. So please reach into your pockets and help me as I run 26.2 miles to help so many children and families who are faced with the challenges of Autism on a daily basis. Thank you with all my heart!
