Friends and Family,
On October 8th, at the age of 39.9999... this girl right here will run her first ever 26.2! I chose this particular race- the Amica Newport Marathon- because of it's beautiful course, and I am thrilled to learn that I have the opportunity to fund raise for a charity that is near and dear to my heart.
I am proud to partner with The Fund for Autistic Children, a Massachusetts 501(c)(3) non-profit, as I take on one of my biggest and most exciting personal goals. The Fund is an all volunteer organization that was started by my family in 1984. And I am confident that with this great organization in mind, and with your support, I can fly through those miles!
The Fund for Autistic Children is an all volunteer organization. We have no paid employees and use no agents or agencies. We serve those who serve those with autism.
Our goals are:
1. To increase the awareness of the general public regarding Autism and Spectrum disorders
2. To instill sensitivity regarding the needs of families impacted by Autism
3. To raise funds for worthwhile organizations which deal with Autism, concentrating our funding on Education, Research, Housing and Recreation.
For more information on this wonderful, Massachusetts non-profit, including some of the fabulous institutions we assist, please visit our Facebook page
I have set a modest fund raising goal that I hope to smash- but I cannot do it without your support! Thank you for your time and consideration.
