TL;DR. I am running the London Marathon in honor of my nephew, Zaid who was diagnosed with autism at the age of 3. I am dedicating my miles to raise funds for the Organization for Autism Research (OAR). Will you please help me reach my goal of $5000?

~~~

I am always at a loss for words when starting a letter like this, so allow me to dive right in. As I mention above, my nephew Zaid was diagnosed with Autism at the age of 3. He is 15 today. Over the years, I have watched the dichotomy of his situation unfold in front of my family’s eyes. Autism can be really, really difficult. It is isolating, trying and at times, heartbreaking. But it can also be really, really amazing. It makes you accept the differences and opens your eyes to the strength, found in those whom it affects. It brings an appreciation of milestones, new friends, and new experiences. It allows you to find love in ways you never thought possible.

So, I’ve decided to play a small part in helping those affected by autism. I am pleased to announce that I am running the London Marathon and have committed to raise $5,000 for the Organization for Autism Research [OAR].  Please join me in raising money to help autism research so that we may better help those who live with it every day. No donation is too small.

Quite honestly, my part is easy. All I have to do is run. Those who know me, know that I do plenty of that already. However, for Zaid, his parents, and the extended family (and all families managing Autism), the everyday challenges are countless. With our help we can support  OAR so they may further help Zaid and his family to do whatever they need to ensure he has every opportunity to live a happy and fulfilling life.

Thank you for your support!

If you know of anyone else in your circle who might be interested in supporting me on this journey, please feel free to forward.
