BENEFITING: ORGANIZATION FOR AUTISM RESEARCH

EVENT: 2017 Chicago Marathon RUN FOR AUTISM

EVENT DATE: Oct 08, 2017

Gregory Maurice

THE STORY:

I'm back!  I registered for the 2017 Chicago Marathon.  I plan to stand on Columbus Drive with 45,000 other runners on Sunday, October 8th.  I have been running the marathon since 2007 to raise money for autism. My charitable organization is the Organization for Autism Research (OAR) in Arlington, Virginia. I continue to run for my oldest brother, Sammy and my youngest son, Nicholas.


Nicholas attends school the Alexandria Leigh Center for Autism in Crystal Lake. He is doing very well at the school.  He can read books, do simple math, and write words on paper.  For a while, his behaviors were causing issues at home, but the doctors put him on medication, and they have improved.  We are getting a service dog (Cody), and he will part of the household in September.  Cody will help Nicholas with his behaviors and warn us if he is showing signs of having a seizure.  That is a huge blessing because I have temporal lobe epilepsy.  Cody can also warn me if I am going to have a seizure.  


Autism is a lifelong developmental disability. 1 in 68 children in the United States are diagnosed with autism. That is more than AIDS, diabetes, and cancer combined. People with autism typically have difficulties with communication, sensory input, and appropriate behaviors, as well as deficits in social understanding.


My personal goal is to raise $1,000.00 for my charitable organization Organization for Autism Research (OAR). You can either donate through my crowdrise.com internet page at

or write a check to my cause, please make the check payable to Organization of Autism Research. On the memo section, please state Chicago Marathon – Gregory Maurice. Please send the payment to

Arlington, Virginia 22201

On October 8, 2017, I will run for all people with autism.  Give me the strength and courage to go the distance.
