THE STORY:

Thank you so much for visiting my fundraising page and for any contributions you can make!

It is a privilege to be able to run the Boston Marathon in honor of my amazing stepson, Evan, and all the students and staff at the New England Center for Children. The programs and services NECC delivers to students and families with autism are life changing. Their day programs, residential programs, partnerships with local school districts, continuing education for staff, education and support for families all have one goal: to maximize the potential of all individuals with autism, PDD and related developmental disabilities. NECC is a leader in ABA, partnering with Western New England University to offer a Master's in Science in Applied Behavioral Analysis. The graduates of this program complete the BCBA exam and with their Board Certified Behavior Analysts credential, are changing the landscape of  Special Education worldwide. It is essential work.

If you ask Evan what he likes the most about his program, he most likely won't mention any of that, although he may tell you about how totally cool Mary is (a doctoral student who is using her work with Evan to help other students with autism) or that he thinks it's cute that his teachers have homework too.

Evan will tell you about the aquatic center where he goes swimming with his friends and his team. He will tell you about his ideas for school projects serving as Student Council Secretary. He will tell you about all the friends he's made on his team and other teams. He will tell you about his weekly "bowling trips with the guys." He will tell you about his soccer tournaments with Special Olympics. He will describe his teachers and what he's doing in science, math, history and English. He will tell you about his community outings. He will tell you about his work experience. He will tell you about his success, which is something he hasn't been able to do for years.

Evan has been at NECC for 5 months and he has made more progress than would have been possible anywhere else. Every step I take, every mile I run honors the commitment and courage Evan has shown. Please join me and my wife Marna in supporting NECC and their essential work on behalf of all students with Autism, PDD and related disabilities.

From the bottom of our hearts, we thank you.

Jim, Marna and Evan
