BENEFITING: ORGANIZATION FOR AUTISM RESEARCH
ORGANIZER: ORGANIZATION FOR AUTISM RESEARCH
EVENT DATE: Mar 20, 2016
I am excited and honored to be running in the New York City Half Marathon on Sunday March 20th. Once again I've decided to make those 13.1 miles really meaningful by raising money to help those with a condition that has no cure, Autism. Please consider sponsoring me.
1 in 68 children in the United States is diagnosed with autism. Despite such high prevalance, there us very limited evidence to show which treatment methods are effective. OAR is the only autism organization that focuses solely on applied research. Here are some examples of how your donation will help children with ASD and their families:
$10 provides a Curriculum in a Box professional development set to general education teachers.
$25 provides 15 copies of A Guide to Safety to families and first responders.
$100 provides the Kit for Kids peer education resource to an entire elementary or middle school.
$150 provides 100 copies of a Life Journey through Autism guidebook sent to a community support group or military installation.
$1,000 provides a research grant for a graduate student studying autism.
$3,000 provides a scholarship for a student with autism to attend college.
$30,000 fully underwrites an applied research pilot study.
Everyone who makes a donation will have their name on my shirt for the whole 13.1 miles through New York City. Thank you for helping me support the Organization for Autism Research.
Lots of love
