For the past 3 1/2 years I have been creating a Pilates program for children with Autism. An amazing girl named Natasha was my inspiration for creating it! She was my very first student! I am so lucky to have the priviilage to work with her and all of the other kids I am with every day! They are truely amazing.
I will be riding for Natasha and every other kid I have had the honor to work with!
Please donate if you can! :)
On April 29th, the 2nd annual NEXT for AUTISM Power Pedal event will take place to raise funds for programs and opportunities that empower individuals with autism to live joyful and fulfilling lives. Join us at Swerve Fitness for 45 minutes of cycling, sweating, and fun!
NEXT for AUTISM has spent nearly 15 years building innovative programs that improved the lives of individuals & families living with autism. These include the NYC Autism Charter School, the first charter school for children with autism in NY, the Center for Autism & the Developing Brain, a state-of-the-art diagnostic, clinical & research facility with NY-Pres Hospital, and soon, NEXT for NEIGHBORS, a community-living program for adults with autism, a fast-growing segment of the population.
We're asking each rider to reach out to friends, family and colleagues to raise a minimum of $2,000. You don't have to be an experienced cyclist to join our ride or our cause. You'll get an event t-shirt and more goodies! Best of all, you'll feel good while doing good. Remember: Someone you know loves someone with autism. Ride for them!
