THE STORY:

Drive 4 Rebecca wrote -

** ALMOST SOLD OUT - $2800 - individuals, $3600 - relay teams **

We are excited to announce that Drive4Rebecca was selected as an official charity of The 2011 Nautica NYC Triathlon - Sunday August 7th, 2011.

The Drive4Rebecca is an ongoing effort to help all children with special needs by helping their families to become stronger advocates. The Drive4Rebecca supports research, education and helps increase awareness of autism.

In 2002, we drove 3,500 miles across the country to generate attention for autism and to raise funds to establish a school that could help Rebecca and many other children. In September 2003, we achieved our dream by joining together with five others families to create REED Academy in Garfield, N.J. The one-to-one ratio there has made a remarkable difference for Rebecca and all of her fellow students.

Today, The Drive4Rebecca continues to help parents of children with special needs to become stronger advocates, raises funds to help advance research, and supports REED Academy and other other schools so they can continue the amazing work they do for many children and families.

Rebecca is laughing in the video because she can't wait for her dad to sweat it out during the 2011 Nautica NYC Triathlon while she sits back, relaxes, and comes along for the ride. For the 25 mile bike ride her dad will pull her behind him with the help of a super secret patent-pending device being manufactured by a terrific company called Kent International. Then he will push her in her Advanced Mobility racing chariot for the 10k run -- and no, Rebecca will NOT be pulled on a raft behind her dad in the river because he doesn't want to chase her down the Hudson if she decides to go for a swim.

Thanks for supporting The Drive4Rebecca and help many children with special needs and their families. You can 1) enter the race, 2) click on the Donate button or 3) click on Join The Team button and create a fundraising page just like this one that you can share with your own friends and family to help spread the word and raise money for Team Drive4Rebecca!

Thank you!!!
