Last year my son was diagnosed with HFA - high functioning Autism. Since then we have been trying our best to not only understand him better but also trying to make ourselves better parents. Part of becoming a better parent for me was getting healthier physically so that mentally I would feel better about me and therefore be happier in general. My sister begged me to race the Princess Half Marathon at WDW. We trained all year and conquered. I didn't want my journey to end. I wanted a harder goal so my son would see how hard work and consistency can lead to success. Two of my training buddies signed up for the Marine Corps Marathon and I decided to join them by running for a cause. I have a high goal of $900. I know with a little sacrifices within the next 5-6 months you will be able to help me reach my goal. For just $5 a month you could help me reach my fundraising goal. If you have met 1 person with autism you have met just 1 person with autism. The spectrum is so wide and varried. With helping to fund research, you are helping a whole community have resources to improve the lives of autistic children. Thank you in advance for helping me reach my goal.
