BENEFITING: NICHOLAS JAMES FOUNDATION
EVENT DATE: Jul 20, 2013
I'm going over the edge for Autism. On July 20, 2013, I will rappel down the 22 story Hyatt Regency Hotel in Boston, to raise money for the Nicholas James Foundation for Autism & The Special Olympics.
I couldn't think of a better way to show how important this cause is to me.
Everyday I watch my son Nicholas, who was diagnosed with Autism in 2011, overcome challenges and fears. Now it's my turn to do the same.
I am terrified of heights, but I want to show my son and other families who are affected by Autism that no matter how difficult the challenges are that we face every day, there can not be any challenge big enough to stop us from helping our children live the best possible life and reach their full potential. We can't control Autism, but we can control how we deal with Autism..
All money raised will be split with the Nicholas James Foundation for Autism and The Special Olympics
