Friends and Family,
I am running the ING NYC Marathon to help SPEAK OUT ON AUTISM!!!
As most of you know, running the marathon has been on my list of things to do for a while now. This year a close friend and marathon enthusiast introduced me to The EJ Autism Foundation Team to run the marathon while raising money for a cause near and dear to my heart.
For the last 14 years my family has been fighting Autism to ensure my cousin, Gianluca has as normal a childhood as possible given his Autism. My Aunt and Uncle have taken great sacrifices and have truly lived their lives for their sons.
Their hard work and dedication to their family has allowed Gianluca to graduate 8th grade with honors this spring and move on to St. Edmunds where he will be a freshman in the fall.
Your contributions will not only create awareness for this cause but brighten the lives of those who struggle with Autism.
Thank you so much and come out and watch me on November 6th!
All my love,
