Thank you for visiting my fundraising page and for helping me raise awareness/money for this great charity. Whilst researching which charity to support I came across OAR. Even though I'm not effected by autism in my personal life, I was impressed with what they where doing and how they're supporting not only people with this condition, but also their families.
I have added some information regarding Autism below and how OAR help's people and family members deal with their condition and lead a normal life.
In the past 30 years, the prevalence rate of Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) has skyrocketed. Recent estimates indicate that autism spectrum disorders occur in 1 out of every 59 children born (source: CDC, 2018).

Thank you again for taking the time to learn more and for making those 26.2 miles worth doing.
