ORGANIZER: ORGANIZATION FOR AUTISM RESEARCH
EVENT: Pittsburgh Marathon 2016
EVENT DATE: May 01, 2016
Hello and welcome to my fundraising page!
I am running with RUN for Autism on May 1st in the Pittsburgh Half Marathon. I am dedicating this run to my nephew and Godson - Jake Haney who is one of the spunkiest and happiest little boys that I know. Jake has been diagnosed with autism at an early age. Fortunatley, God has placed him in the hands of the most loving and patient parents. They are always looking at the latest research to see what could help their spunky little man. As of recent, Jake loves to go to music and horse therapy. On a very personal level, autism is near and dear to me.
Since I am a dietitian, health coach and trainer I am always looking for simple and easy ways to help aid in my nephew's health and wellness. Let that be diet and or exercise equipement. However, most of the testomonies are anecdotal. Credible research takes alot of time and money. Milestones are being met in the autism reseach community however there is so much more work that needs to be done.
Please note that 84% of the funding will aid in the Organization for Autism Research - a national nonprofit organization that funds research.
Thanks so much for visiting my page!
