BENEFITING: AUTISM SPEAKS
EVENT DATE: Jan 07, 2015
I am running the Dopey Challenge at Walt Disney World in support of Autism Speaks to help find treatments and a cure for autism. Autism is the second most common developmental disorder in the United States affecting one in every 88 children born today. Despite some promising discoveries, the cause of autism is unknown and a cure does not exist. Research is crucial. Every 15 minutes another child is diagnosed with autism. Not only must we find ways to improve the quality of life for children and adults with autism, but we also must find a cure, and soon.
This is your chance to help fight against autism by raising money for autism research and heightening public awareness. Please join us in our fight as I raise $2100 to help fund essential research. I will be running Jan 8-11, 2015 and each day holds a different race:
Jan 8th ~ 5K
Jan 9th ~ 10K
Jan 10th ~ Half marathon
Jan 11th ~ Marathon
I would greatly appreciate your support. Not only will your funds go towards finding a cure for autism, but it will also help me get to the start line at Disney!
