We are fundraising for and walking in the Autism 5k 2019 in honor of our own Carter James, who is an amazingly unique 10 year old boy on the Autism spectrum from Forest Lake, MN. He was diagnosed in 2016 and we have been participating in this walk ever since. We are so very fortunate to have a great support system and good insurance for Carter, but many families are not as lucky.
We as a team are made up of Carter's family and friends who want to be the change we wish to see in the world. Please consider changing the lives of local autism families by donating to a great cause that supports them.
Net proceeds of this walk benefit Children with Autism Deserve Education (C.A.D.E.), a nonprofit that supports children and families affected by autism. C.A.D.E. distributes grants to local families in need to support therapy and treatment and allots a portion to autism research as well. Donations go directly towards the grant program.
