BENEFITING: Nashoba Learning Group Inc
ORGANIZER: Nashoba Learning Group Inc
EVENT: 2015 Boston Marathon
I'm running (okay, okay .. more like shuffling) my 6th Boston Marathon on April 20th.
Why in the world would this 48 year-old, non-athlete do such a thing? Out of pure love for an incredible program that truly BELIEVES in the potential of people who are on the more severe end of the autism spectrum.
Nashoba Learning Group provides innovative programming for children and adults on the autism spectrum. They honor and respect their individuality while using evidence-based methods. Their mission is to enable children and adults with autism to function with the greatest possible productivity and independence in the community, home, and workplace throughout their lives.
My son Jack is blessed to be a student at NLG. My hope is that more "Jacks" can have the same opportunity. NLG is working hard to expand and create opportunities to replicate their programming while maintaing quality. Please consider donating if you can .. every little bit helps
