THE STORY:

Hi Friends & Family, I am back!!! I am running again this year with the Organization for Autism Research at the Chicago Marathon in honor of my cousin Nathan & my nephew Devin. I am also participating in the Iron Girl Triathalon in August located in Pleasant Prairie Wisconsin. Since 2012 you have helped me raise awareness and assisted me in the fundraising efforts to support families whose loved ones struggle with Autism. No donation is too small. For the next few months, I will be training hard again for these two little guys and I ask for your generous support to help me reach my fundraising goal. Many of you know these two little guys so you know how loving and strong these boys are, despite their challenges they do not allow their diagnosis stand in their way. Thank you in advance for all of your love and support !! -FINISH LINE HERE I COME !!!!! Canella







The Organization for Autism Research (OAR) is an Official Charity with the Bank of America Chicago Marathon and has a limited number of guaranteed entries available for the race on October 8, 2017.

 

To join the RUN FOR AUTISM team, click "SET UP YOUR FUNDRAISER".

 

REGISTRATION OPTIONS:

To receive guaranteed race entry though OAR, you must agree to the fundraising requirement set by the race:

  1. Runners who register for the race with a charity entry prior to the drawing (Oct. 25 - Nov. 29) will receive complimentary race entry ($195-$210 value) and must commit to a $1,000 fundraising minimum.
  2. Runners who register for the race with a charity entry after the drawing is selected (Dec. 13) must commit to a $1,500 fundraising minimum.

The fundraising deadline is one month after the race (Nov. 8, 2017).

*By agreeing to the fundraising requirement and verifying their credit card information, runners are assuming full responsibility for achieving their fundraising minimum in full, even in the case of unforeseen circumstances including injury, which may prevent them from participating in the event.

 

To fundraise for OAR without receiving guaranteed race entry, join the team with no required fundraising minimum. (This option is for legacy runners, time qualifiers, 2016 deferments, or those selected through the drawing in December).
