THE STORY:

I am running the NYC Marathon in only a few more days!  I'm trying to raise 500.00 for F.A.C.E.S. Northwest, providing summer programming for kids with autism.  These kids and their families run a marathon every.single.day.  Won't you please contribute to this amazing organization??  I'll carry the names of every one of my donors across the finish line with me in NYC next Sunday, and you'll get a certificate, along with your slip of paper, saying you helped me cross the finish line for F.A.C.E.S!

 

 

 

 

F.A.C.E.S. Northwest is a 501 (c) 3 non-profit corporation founded and operated by parents of children with autism in Whatcom County. We conduct an eight-week therapeutic recreational day camp in July and August for children and young adults with autism from ages 5 through 21. Our campers are exposed to community involvement, independent living skills, academic enrichment and positive social relationships using evidence-based strategies. We work in partnership with school districts to offer an Extended School Year (ESY) program, targeting the specific needs of autistic children and young adults according to their Individual Educational Plan (IEP). Each camper is teamed with a one-on-one instructional assistant in order to maximize their potential for success.

WE NEED YOUR HELP!

We at F.A.C.E.S. Northwest encourage each citizen of Whatcom County to help support children and young adults with autism through volunteering their time, donation or sponsorship in order to build the capacity of our community to sustain all of our citizens. According to the Centers for Disease Control, the prevalence of autism is 1 in every 88 births and almost 1 in every 54 boys. In addition, the Autism Society of America estimates the lifetime cost for a person with autism to be between 3.5-5 million dollars. It is only through a collaborative community effort that children and young adults with autism in Whatcom County will have the opportunity to go from dependency to contribution and to lead positive, productive and rewarding lives.
