THE Drive4Rebecca is an official charity of The 2011 Nautica NYC Triathlon - Sunday August 7th, 2011.
The Drive4Rebecca is an ongoing effort to help all children with special needs by helping their families to become stronger advocates. The Drive4Rebecca supports research, education and helps increase awareness of autism.
Rebecca is laughing in the video because she can't wait for her dad to sweat it out during the 2011 Nautica NYC Triathlon while she sits back, relaxes, and comes along for the ride. For the 25 mile bike ride her dad will pull her behind him with the help of a super secret patent-pending device being manufactured by a terrific company called Kent International. Then he will push her in her Advanced Mobility racing chariot for the 10k run -- and no, Rebecca will NOT be pulled on a raft behind her dad in the river because he doesn't want to chase her down the Hudson if she decides to go for a swim.
We are very excited about our team and several team members have specified that 50% of the funds they raise will support their favorite charities that help children with special needs.
* Cindy Benjamin is helping the Children's Therapy Center
* Rick Colisimo is helping REED Academy
* Ian Jacobs is helping The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia Foundation
* Linda Meyer is helping Autism NJ
* The Seaver relay team is helping The Seaver Autism Center

It will take anywhere from 3 seconds to 1 minute for your pic to upload, depending on how big it is.
You're going to see this message every time you post a new pic. So, we're making the text really long so that it'll take you at least five picture uploads to read it all. Here's what we're thinking...While your first picture is uploading think about someone you want to kiss. When you upload your second pic think about one friend who you can beat in a race. On your third photo upload think about your favorite food that begins with the letter H. While your fourth picture is uploading think about how great it would be if you were a world class breakdancer. While your fifth picture is uploading try to think of the best candy to eat if you were a mime spending a month in New Zealand. If you upload a sixth and seventh picture please just read all of this again.
We're setting up your Fundraiser page right now. It will take anywhere from 3 seconds to 27 seconds.
