THE STORY:

Hi everyone!

I am thrilled to be running the 2017 Boston Marathon for the New England Center for Children (NECC). NECC provides a full range of educational, residential and treatment programs designed to help children with autism, PDD and other developmental disabilities reach their full potential. 

My sister, Julia, has worked at NECC for the past four years. I have had the opportunity to visit her at the school and meet the amazing students she works with each day.  They are truly an inspiration and I couldn't have a better motivation to run the Boston marathon than to raise money to support the activities they rely on to learn, grow and flourish.

Fitness and health are a major part of my life - working out, running, and keeping fit are so important to having a positive life outlook and are a fantastic way to feel empowered and strong. The funds raised by the NECC team will largely go toward the fitness equipment the students use. Having access to quality athletic facilities and equipment offers the students the opportunity to grow both physically and emotionally, strengthening their bodies and their self-image at the same time. 

I am thankful for any and all support during this exciting and challenging process. Every donation, cheer, and words of encouragement will help me to achieve my running goal and, more importantly, will support an organization that will continue to improve the lives of many students!

Thank you,

Ali

@NECCforautism

The New England Center for Children provides a full range of educational, residential and treatment programs designed to help children with autism, PDD and other developmental disabilities reach their full potential. Our programs are designed to give children with autism a strong foundation on which they can learn, grow and thrive. NECC programs offer a continuum of services for children at various ages and levels of ability.

Emphasizing independence, skill development, and safety, our educational services have been carefully developed to deliver superior care and heightened learning opportunities for each child we serve. To that end, our services complement our programs by teaching students with autism through real world opportunities and experiences essential to physical, cognitive and psychological growth.

Using state-of-the-art Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) teaching methodologies contained in the Autism Curriculum Encyclopedia (ACE) we focus on teaching our students the skills they need to increase their abilities to function and communicate successfully with as much independence as possible. NECC's curriculum focuses on academic, speech and language, social and life skills development, vocational training, physical education, occupational therapy, family services, outreach services and health care. All NECC services have been carefully developed to deliver superior care and heightened learning opportunities for each child we serve.

Through the John Hancock Non-Profit Program, we have received four entries into the Boston Marathon. These runners will commit to raise awareness, valuable resources for the school's Annual Fund, and go 26.2 miles to support our students.
