THE STORY:

  TRAIN 4 AUTISM wrote -

Feel the joy of crossing the finish line knowing you’ve helped the autism program/organization of your choice. With Train 4 Autism, you’ll gain courage, strength and make a significant impact in the fight against autism. All levels and abilities are welcomed as Train 4 Autism is a regoistered 501c3 non-profit that was started by parents, not athletes. Our mission is to support and empower parents and children touched by the disorder by involvement in endurance sport. Many Train 4 Autism participants are persons competing in their first athletic event ever or athletes that choose to walk a race instead of run – everyone is welcome!

What is Autism? Autism is a devastating neurological and biological disorder that typically affects children between the ages in 18 months to five years of age. Autism currently affects 1 in every 110 children today. It is estimated there are over 1 million people in the United States alone with autism. Autism affects each individual differently and at different levels of severity. Some people with autism are severely affected, cannot speak, require constant one-on-one care, and are never able to live independently. While others who have less severe symptoms, can communicate, and eventually acquire the necessary skills to live on their own. 

My brother is 10 years old and is one of the few young boys with this nuerological disorder. His name is Julian Angel Vargas , a little red headed Mexican American boy that loves video games and dancing. Although, he is unable to speak he understands very well. Does good in school, and has manners. He is a great kid, whom we as a family love very much. I've always wanted to run the la marathon for a good cause and no better than to do it for something like autism. I study kinesiology and psychology, so I have developed a good understanding about what autism is. It's a disorder that continues to diagnose more and more young children as each year passes. I wanted to run this for my younger brother and for other families and children that have to learn to be patient and extra loving to those with this disorder. As I know it  takes a lot to raise some of the more severe cases of autism and whether it's severe or not. There is nothing I would like to do more than help some way possible. I have 50 days to raise $500. please any donation would be fine. Thank you , I will work my butt off to make you guys proud
