EVENT DATE: Apr 17, 2017
My father, sister and I are very excited to begin our journey to the Boston Marathon! We will be running with the great Doug Flutie in an effort to raise money for a cause that is very near to our hearts. Autism. Our beautiful daughter, niece and granddaughter Elliana was diagnosed with high functioning autism in June. The last few months have been very emotional and busy sorting through all the information and making decisions that will best support Ellie. The support we have received from CDS Maine and her specialized pre-school has given us so much insight into how important early intervention is and how many families are affected by this disability. Any amount you can donate to our team on behalf of the Doug Flutie Jr. Foundation for Autism would be so greatly appreciated. Ellie is doing amazing thanks to great support from friends and family. I feel grateful every day for the continued research and awareness happening for austism. We are so blessed to have an amazing daughter who will have every opportunity to kick ass in the fusture because of foundations like Doug Flutie's!
Dear Family, Friends and Community Members,
We are so excited to announce that the THREE of us have been selected to run the 2017 Boston Marathon for Dougie's Team (Doug Flutie Jr. Foundation for Autism)
We have a lofty fundraising goal to meet and we won't stop until you see us at the finish line!
Any amount you can contribute will help us meet this goal and help families like ours who are affected by autism.
Thank you for all of your support!
