ORGANIZER: Dylan's Wings
EVENT DATE: Mar 15, 2015
Dear Family and Friends,
I am humbled and honored to be running with Dylan's Wings of Change to raise funds and awareness for Autism. I am specifically running to raise funds for the Bronxchester Challenger League, which was founded by Lizette Hernandez, my sister-in-law. Please read her words below:
"We are excited for the start of our 2nd season of the Bronxchester Challenger League.The Challenger League is a ten session program to help children on the Autism Spectrum with sensory integration, and social engagment, through baseball. The program allows children, both girls and boys, regardless of their functioning level, to play baseball in a safe, and judgment free environment. This will be possible through the assistance of Buddies (pinch hitters), who will assist the children, both on and off the field."
I had the pleasure and privilege of attending some of the games last year. I witnessed children growing throughout the season and it was heartwarming and encouraging. It's my honor to run and raise as much money as possible for this amazing cause. If you are able, I ask that you donate what your heart feels.
Below, is information for Dylan's Wings of Hope, another amazing foundation!
