Hey y'all. Thank you for supporting Team Carson, a part of Dougie's Team to support the Doug Flutie Jr. Foundation for Autism!
My little guy Carson loves sandboxes and singing and apples and dogs. And Carson is also on the autism spectrum. He has had challenges with verbal expression, and early intervention programs have helped him tremendously as he takes on his challenges with a giant smile.
Autism is a spectrum disorder, affecting people differently and to varying degrees. I'm running the Boston Marathon on April 17, 2017, both for Carson and also to support a terrific organization that helps improve access to care and support programs for families touched by autism.
The Doug Flutie Jr. Foundation for Autism is also a very well run organization. Charity Navigator gives it a four-star rating, and a 93.33 score out of 100 (and a 100% accountability & transparency score). About 78% of funds raised go directly toward program expenses and services. In other words, you can feel very good supporting this organization knowing that your contribution is really making a difference for families!
So, PLEASE give generously, and please share the link and spread the word! For Carson. :)
