Jason Breslin is a high-functioning autistic young man. He is a talented guitarist and knows more about Broadway and the entertainment industry than almost anyone alive. He struggles with social skills, but through assistance from the POINT Community where he lives in White Plains, is working on getting better. Jason took up running with the assistance of the Achilles Program, about three years ago. Never much interested in athletics, Jason has now run in numerous 5K, 10K and half marathon races. And now he is taking on his biggest challenge- the New York City Marathon. POINT supports young adults, ages 21 and older, with developmental and learning disabilities, including autism spectrum disorders, to live independently in apartments located throughout downtown White Plains. Participants engage in a variety of vocational, life skills training, and social activities and enjoy the camaraderie of others and the oversight of specialists provided by WJCS and JCCA.

Jason is running to raise money for POINT, which is mainly funded via fees paid by the parents of POINT participants and is supported by UJA and its two member agencies- WJCS and JCCA.
