BENEFITING: ORGANIZATION FOR AUTISM RESEARCH
EVENT DATE: Mar 15, 2015
UPDATE: OAR is SOLD OUT for the 2015 United Airlines NYC Half
Welcome to the RUN FOR AUTISM team for the 2015 United Airlines NYC Half!
By choosing to RUN FOR AUTISM, you will be supporting the Organization for Autism Research's mission to fund research and resources that help families today! Our 2014 NYC Half team raised funds that allowed OAR to create new resources addressing issues faced by autism siblings. OAR now has three new resources as part of our Autism Sibling Support Initiative. By partnering with OAR for the 2015 NYC Half, you'll be helping OAR distribute these valuable resources, as well and fund new research studies and programming.
Here are some of the ways we'll use the funds you raise:
$25 provides 25 copies of a Life Journey through Autism resource guide sent to a community support group or military installation.
$100 provides the Kit for Kids peer education resource to an entire elementary or middle school.
$1,000 provides a research grant for a graduate student studying autism.
$2,000 supports the cost of sponsoring a speaker at a Conference-on-the-Road event.
$3,000 provides a scholarship for a student with autism to attend college.
$30,000 fully underwrites an applied research pilot study.
Our goal this year is to have 80 OARathoners at the NYC Half and raise $80,000!
By joining the RUN FOR AUTISM team and committing to fundraise, you will guarantee your entry to the race.
Our fundraising minimum is $1,000. Select the "FUNDRAISE FOR THIS CAMPAIGN" button at the top of the page to secure your entry today!
