THE STORY:

On Oct 8th my brother and I will each be running 26.2 miles in the Chicago Marathon with Team Run For Autism, benefiting OAR (Organization for Autism Research), a national, non profit. I am excited to focus my training on something greater than just my personal enjoyment and I am reaching out to YOU for support in this journey!


Approximately 1 in 68 children will be diagnosed with ASD (Autism Spectrum Disorder) this year. Receiving an ASD diagnosis can be overwhelming, leaving parents feeling unsure of what to expect. Unfortunately, a feeling of isolation and fear of sharing this diagnosis with friends and family is common. I want to help by supporting an organization that directly impacts these children's lives, their families and communities, and bring awareness to a disorder that is becoming more common. There is no cure for ASD, but with early intervention the improvement in the lives of children with ASD can be amazing. 


OAR uses donations to fund applied research- studying the day to day needs of someone with ASD. OAR also creates and supplies educational resources to families and educators who are impacted by ASD. Scholarships for sutdents with ASD are also provided through the donations to OAR.


Our goal is to raise $2,000 each, enough to provide a scholarship for a student with autism to attend college, as well as educational support resources for communities. I am so grateful for your support, whether it be financial, an encouraging email, a personal testimony, or a thumbs up when you see me training. 

Thank you!

Anna
