Friends & Family,
On April 12, we will be participating in Battle of the Bikes - a joint fundraising and cycling competition between Aspire and Autism Speaks. Each nonprofit and its supporters will raise money to compete up until the final team-based cycling event. The goal is to harness the collective fundraising power of participants, donors, supporters, and their networks to raise money for and highlight the amazing work of both Aspire and Autism Speaks.
As a team , we've committed to raising $1,000 for Autism Speaks. Every single dollar raised will go directly back to pioneering services and programming. This includes job training for adults with disabilities, pediatric therapies, inclusion consulting for schools and workplaces and so much more. Illinois is currently ranked 49th for funds directed towards people with disabilities, so the funds raised from this event are crucial to ensuring Autism Speaks can continue to serve its participants and families in Chicago.
It would mean so much to us, and the families of Autism Speaks, if you could help us reach our fundraising goal. Whether it's one less lunch out next week, or skipping a few Starbucks trips in the mornings, every and any amount is greatly appreciated. Thank you all so much for your support!
