BENEFITING: DOUG FLUTIE JR FOUNDATION FOR AUTISM INC
ORGANIZER: DOUG FLUTIE JR FOUNDATION FOR AUTISM INC
EVENT: 2017 Boston Marathon
EVENT DATE: Apr 17, 2017
I'm running my second Boston Marathon with Dougie's Team because of what the Foundation stands for and all they do to help families affected by Autism live life to the fullest.
My son, Shea, was diagnosed at the age of 3 and it's amazing to see how far he has come over the years. I watch the effort he puts in daily for the things he struggles with and it inspires me to no end. I've watched my wife advocate for our son over all these years and seeing the progress because of it, is astonishing. I've seen firsthand what positivity and encouragement can do for those with Autism and that's why I'm even more honored to run with this team and raise money for this Foundation.
I'm inspired, passionate and fired up because I love my family, my city and want to raise awareness and promote acceptance for Autism.
Thank you so much for all of your support that will get me to that starting line. I'll see you at Copley. Let's go!
