It’s time for the Genesis “Blazing Trails for Autism” fundraiser! This annual event raises money for our son Alex’s program and group home. As with most other events in this strange year, “Blazing Trails” will be a event with the walk/run being completed by the participants on their own time over their own route. The needs of the Genesis program, however, are anything but “virtual”. The requirements for PPE for participants & staff, and rigorous safety protocols, have increased the need for funding beyond the usual. The requirement for social distancing has greatly complicated operations at Genesis, as there must be smaller classes and therefore more space (the program just leased another floor in their building), fewer participants in each van for transportation, and much more attention to cleaning and ventilation. Last year our team raised almost $9,000. Can we do it again? Perhaps even more? We thank you for your support, and hope that you can .
