Hi Everyone! Thank you SO much for being incredible enough to click into this post and consider donating to such a life changing and amazing cause.
My name is Giana Postiglione. I am still a fairly "new" Boston resident... and if there is one thing I have learned from the last year I have lived here, it is that 'Bostonians' have this heart and soul that they truly incorporate into all they do. I have been fortunate and blessed enough to witness such amazing love in and for this city and the people who live here. What better way to be a part of this city than running in their beloved Boston Marathon?!
Last year, I watched the person I love most run the Boston Marathon for Doug Flutie and FINISH. Alex's determination to run for a cause so close to his heart was truly inspirational to me. I was mesmerized and moved by the dedication and love he has for The Doug Flutie Foundation. I've witnessed him be the best "big brother" there can be to his younger brother, Thomas who has Autism. It is because of Alex's unconditional love for "T", that my eyes have been opened to everything life has to offer - to all that exists that is a blessing in disguise. He's allowed me to see life in a different light, and for that I am forever grateful.
In this year's Boston Marathon, I am running for Alex and the dedication he has for Thomas and for Autism Awareness. I am running for Thomas, his love for Trains and Walt Disney. Most importantly, I am running to celebate life and living it in ever way we know how.
Thank you all for encouraging me and supporting the Doug Flutie Foundation for Autism. This foundation is making a real change and has suddenly become a very big part of my life. By donating to this cause know that you are not only helping and encouraging families like ours but families affected by Autism everywhere who crave your love and support.
Any amount is greatly appreciated and makes a bigger impact than you think. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for believing in me and believing in Dougie and Thomas. We can't cure Autism, but we can give the resources that allow individuals with Autism work towards their goals and live life to their greatest potential is a great gift that is worth supporting.
