BENEFITING: TRAIN 4 AUTISM
ORGANIZER: TRAIN 4 AUTISM
EVENT: 2015 LA Marathon
EVENT DATE: Mar 15, 2015
As you may know, I am training for my first full marathon with Train for Autism and I am asking for donations to help support autism awareness and our local charity partners.
This year, Train 4 Autism, is going to use the 2015 Asics LA Marathon raise funds to buy Creative Steps a van to help get the kids where they need to go.
Creative Steps is a post high school program serving our growing autistic population that is “aging out” of school. Just like Train 4 Autism, Creative Steps was co-founded by a parent, Lisa Szilagyi, who couldn’t find the right organization to meet her child’s needs. Similar programs often were outside her community, not always accepting, or able to accommodate children like Lisa’s daughter. Rather than send her daughter way beyond her community or make sacrifices in her daughter’s care, Lisa chose to launch a local program in locally Santa Monica.
No donation is too small and if you know anyone who might be interested in supporting please share.
