THE STORY:

Hi Everyone !
I'm Angela and I am an aspiring behavior therapist in Philadelphia. I work with clients negotiating Autism Spectrum Disorders. In August I will have the chance to support my clients and have some fun by rappelling from a 22 story building! Help me raise $1,000 to support autism research, prevention, and treatment! and go OVER the edge of the Philadelphia's Hyatt hotel!


To secure a rope and go over the edge, each participant is required to a raise a minimum of $1,000.


This once-in-a-lifetime experience has been arranged by Autism Speaks the world's leading autism science and advocacy organization, dedicated to funding research into the causes, prevention, treatments and a cure for autism; increasing awareness of autism spectrum disorders; and advocating for the needs of individuals with autism and their families.
