Welcome to my fundraising page!
Running has been a passion of mine for the last 8 years but an even greater life long passion has been my desire to give back to my community and causes that are near and dear to my heart. Over the years running has given me the opportunity to raise money through my racing for the Chicago children's hospital, St Jude, Michael J Fox Parkinson's Disease, a dear friend's daughter with cystic fibrosis, the Boston One Fund after the bombings, and now the Organization for Autism Research. Autism has touched my life through my own family members and close friends of mine with autistic children. It's can be very challenging life for the people that manage autism and their family members that support them emotionally, financially, and through care taking. I have seen the tireless selfless hours my friends and family spend caring for loved ones
Funds raised by the RUN FOR AUTISM--2016 London Marathon team will support the Organization for Autism Research (OAR). OAR funds research and programs that help parents, families, and educators in the autism community on a daily basis. To learn more, visit www.researchautism.org.
I hope I can count on you to support my marathon run by contributing to OAR!
