EVENT: 2017 Boston Marathon
EVENT DATE: Apr 17, 2017
In 2012 my sweet boy was diagnosed with autism and speech apraxia. Scared and not knowing his future I felt I lost my child. Over the years I realized that I was blessed to be on this journey with my son. Yes, we have had many lows but those lows have taught me so much. They made me a better person. He made me a better person. I have this incredible boy who loves so unconditionally and freely it will take your breathe away. Along our journey I started running. 2 years ago I ran the Chicago Marathon for Autism Speaks. What an incredible experience to run for a charity that meant so much to my family! I had always hoped I would have a chance to run for the Flutie Foundation but never saw it a reality. Well April 2017 my dream is a reality! Please help in supporting this amazing foundation that is helping families with autism.
