BENEFITING: FOR AUTISTIC KIDS FOUNDATION
EVENT DATE: Nov 09, 2014
As I began my journey to get in better shape some friends pushed me to get involved in running races. I completed my first race a few months back, and now I am running The Hot Chocolate 15K in Chicago on November 9th. I decided to run this race for a purpose. That purpose is to support the For Autistic Kids Foundation.
Here is a little about the organization. Thank you for any support!
Autism is a lifelong disorder, robbing children of cognitive, communication, and social skills. No one knows the cause of Autism.
There is no cure. Nearly 300,000 children in the US along are already affected and the rage of Autism is climbing.
The For Autistic kids foundation was established to raise funds to broaden public awareness and understanding of autism, and for the research for early detection, prevention, treatment, and a cure to benefit children with Autistic Spectrum Disorders.
All proceeds raised go to helping autistic kids.
