Thank you for visiting my RUN FOR AUTISM page!
On March 20, 2016, I will be running in the NYC Half Marathon, raising money for The Organization for Autism Research! This is an amazing cause that is close to my heart as my brother Jason was diagnosed with autism at a very early age.
OAR’s mission is to use applied science to answer questions that parents, families, teachers, caregivers, and individuals with autism confront daily. Your donation will help aid their dedication, as well as my efforts, so that together we can RUN FOR AUTISM.

1 in 68 children in the United States is diagnosed with autism. By joining the RUN FOR AUTISM team, you're supporting OAR's mission to fund research and resources that help people with autism and their families today. Here are some of the ways that OAR uses the funds raised by the RUN FOR AUTISM team:
$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.
