THE STORY:

Hi, I’m Matt Scott. I’m an NYC-based filmmaker and an avid runner.

And I’m terrified to be running the 2016 NYC Marathon!

But - I’m also thrilled to be raising money for the Organization for Autism Research (OAR), a group dedicated to improving the lives of those affected by autism through the funding of applied science. (More info below.)

A few years ago, I was hired to teach film to a kid named Jason. Jason was 12, loved making movies, and lived with autism his whole life.  He was also one of the funniest, most creative, sweet souls I ever met and he quickly became someone I am proud to still call my friend 6 years later.

Over the years, I’ve been lucky to be able to create a series of short docs and fundraising videos for autism schools and organizations over the years. Meeting the students, their families, and the educators who use a combination of science and love to knock down the barriers for those affected by autism has been eye-opening and soul-enriching for me.

So now, I’m proud to punish my feet and my sanity, and run 26.2 miles in the 2016 NYC Marathon to raise money for OAR.  

Donate what you can, spread the word, be as awesome as you already are. 

Help replace my marathon terror with marathon joy!

Thanks for listening -

Matt
