THE STORY:

All,

You may or may not know that I am training for my first ever LA Marathon. That is 26.2 long miles from Dodger Stadium to Santa Monica! The LA Marathon takes places in 3 short weeks. I decided to take this on as a personal challenge (fit for 40! lol) but most recently decided to raise money for an important cause by joining the Train 4 Autism team!

My nephew Isaiah who is just about to turn 11, was diagnosed with Autism when he was just a toddler. I saw my sister and brother-in-law step up to the plate and become advocates for my nephew's well-being. They ensured he got the necessary assessments, placements and therapy that he needed to succeed.  As just a spectator in my nephew's life I have seen him grow by leaps and bounds throughout the years all because of the classes and therapies that he has participated in. If you can help me raise money for this important cause myself, my nephew, my family...and the entire Autism community would thank you....anything big or small goes a long way! Thanks in advance!!

My nephew participates in this wonderful organization: http://www.actorsforautism.org/

Train 4 Autism is a foundation dedicated to bringing together a community of athletes, physically active, and socially conscious people who are committed to raising awareness and funds for research and treatment for those living with Autism and their families. Fund raising and volunteer opportunities for individual athletes, teams and entire families include marathons, half marathons, 10Ks, 5Ks, walks, triathlons, swimming, and cycling events.

Today, there are many treatment centers and research programs all doing vital work, and all carrying different yet important messages and missions. Train 4 Autism provides the infrastructure, technology, and support for participants to raise funds and contribute to the programs about which they are most passionate.

Train 4 Autism is a nonprofit, 501(c)(3) organization founded by parents and families of children touched by Autism.

 

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.
