BENEFITING: Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai
EVENT DATE: Mar 20, 2016
On Sunday, March 20th, I will once again be running through the streets of New York during the NYC Half Marathon, but this year will be different. I will be running for a cause I hold dear - the Seaver Autism Center at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai. Since 2007, I have worked at the Seaver Center in various capacities, and now, I have begun my career here as a Postdoctoral Fellow. Throughout the years I have grown to love the families that come through our center. I have worked with dedicated families and professionals, all striving towards better understanding autism spectrum disorder. I am very passionate about the work we do, and now I would like to give back in the best way I know how – running! Please support me as I run 13.1 miles for the Seaver Autism Center.

Thank you for your support!
