BENEFITING: AABR FOUNDATION INC
EVENT DATE: Nov 04, 2012
Inspiration comes in many forms.
As a member of the AABR Development Team, part of my job is to raise funds for our individuals with autism and other developmental disabilities. Typically, this is done through events, grants and mailings. This year, it will also occur on 26.2 miles of pavement.
A few years ago, lying in my bed eating fried chicken and watching the Yankees, the thought of running the ING NYC Marathon seemed impossible. Yet, I would often see our individuals doing things that years ago many believed would’ve been out of their reach; like having jobs, volunteering in their communities or teaching CPR. So when the opportunity came to raise funds for them by running the Marathon, I seized it. They don’t limit themselves, why should I?
With your help, we hope to raise $15,000. If you’d like to help, please visit aabr.org/inspiration.html or return the enclosed envelope with your contribution.
Inspiration comes in many forms.I’m fortunate enough to be surrounded by it every day.
