Tough mudder done
September 11, 2016
BENEFITING: ORGANIZATION FOR AUTISM RESEARCH
ORGANIZER: ORGANIZATION FOR AUTISM RESEARCH
EVENT: Tough Mudder Pittsburgh 2016
EVENT DATE: Sep 10, 2016
The Organization for Autism Research is a charity that I have recently learned about but I am passionate about autism research because we have struggled with an autism diagnosis with our youngest son. Many specialists have brought up autism in regards to all of his health issues, but he is not officially diagnosed regardless of how many "red flags" and "quirks" he has. We still are working towards figuring everything out and know that if he does have autism, it is treatable and ultimately curable for the majority of kids. OAR can help parents going through this same ordeal.
This will be my second Tough Mudder event and I am happy to run in support of OAR. I will also be running in support of the Wounded Warrior Project because that is what Tough Mudder raises awareness for. I have attended a third Tough Mudder in a volunteer capacity and I have enjoyed every moment of my Tough Mudder experiences. I hope to complete the full Tough Mudder again and earn my second headband and raise my goal amount for OAR. Thank you for reading and for considering donating in support of my run!
